The white grape variety is a new cross between Dabouki x Chasselas. The cross was made in 1956 in France by the French ampelographer Paul Truel (1924-2014) on behalf of INRA in Montpellier. The very early ripening vine is mainly used as table grape. It is cultivated in France in the two departments of Hérault and Vaucluse. In 2016, 203 hectares of vines were reported with a falling trend (Kym Anderson statistics).
