The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Bailey x Golden Queen. It contains genes from Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed by Zenbai Kawakami (1868-1944) in Niigata (Honshu) in Japan. The variety Pokdum (also Pok Dum), which is cultivated in Thailand, is a mutation. The variety was a crossing partner in the new breeding of Cabernet Suntory. The very late-maturing vine is susceptible to botrytis. It is mainly used as a table grape, but in some Asian countries, especially Japan, it is also used as a wine grape. Here it occupies 28 hectares of vineyards. There are other stands in Cambodia (3 ha), Taiwan (94 ha), and Thailand (18 ha). In 2016, a total of 143 hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
