Agawam (or Rogers 15) is a hybrid grape variety.[1] It is a crossing of Carter (another hybrid grape with Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera in its pedigree) and Muscat Hamburg (a Vitis vinifera cultivar). Agawam is one of the so-called Rogers' Hybrids created by E.S. Rogers in the early-to-mid-19th century, and is unique among the named cultivars of that group in that it is self-fertile.

It can be used to make a rosé wine having a "foxy" flavor.[1]

Synonyms[edit]

Agawam is also called Agavam, Rogers 15, and Rogers' Hybrid Nr. 15.
