The white grape variety is a new cross between Dattier de Beyrouth (Afus Ali) x Sultana Moscata, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2013. The cross was made in 1964 in France by Paul Truel on behalf of INRA in Montpellier. The vine is mainly used as table grape. It is grown in small quantities in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. In 2016, two hectares of vines were designated (Kym Anderson statistics).
