Damascus Black

The red grape variety comes from France. It must not be confused with the Black Morocco variety (with the synonym Black Damascus). The crossing or selection took place in France in 1851 at the Moreau-Robert vine breeding institute. It is unclear whether it is a new variety or a spontaneous cross; the parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The grape variety is used as a table grape.
