The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Merlan x Fratava. Synonyms are Ce, Cerazon and MI 5-100, with genes from Vitis aestivalis, Vitis berlandieri, Vitis labrusca, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1985 in the Czech Republic by a team led by Vilém Kraus (1924-2013). The plant variety protection was granted in 2008. With the same parents, the new varieties Kofranka, Marlen, Nativa and Laurot were created. This late-maturing, high-yielding vine is moderately resistant to botrytis and both types of mildew. It produces dark red, fruity red wines with a cherry aroma, to which the name (lat. cerasus) also refers. The variety is cultivated in Moravia. In 2010, no stocks were recorded yet (statistics Kym Anderson).
