The white grape variety (also FR 456-82) is an interspecific new variety between Merzling x GM 6495-3 (Sibera). It contains genes from Vitis amurensis, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1982 at the State Viticultural Institute in Freiburg (Baden-Württemberg) by Norbert Becker (1937-2012). The early-maturing, frost-hardy vine is resistant to both types of mildew. It is mainly used as table grape. Its decorative leaves also make it suitable as an ornamental vine.
