Black Eagle

The red grape variety (also Underhill 8-12) is a new breed between Concord x Black Prince. With the same parents the variety Black Defiance was created. It contains genes from Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1866 in the USA by the breeder Stephen W. Underhill. It is cultivated in the USA and Canada, where it is mainly used as table grape. The variety was a crossing partner in the new breeding Armlong. In 2010 no stock was reported (statistics Kym Anderson).
