The red grape variety (also Rogers 44) is an interspecific new breeding between Carter (Isabella-Sämling) x Black Hamburg (Schiava Grossa). It contains genes from Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1865 by the US breeder E. S. Rogers in Salem/Massachusetts. Incidentally, the same parents also produced the Barry variety. It is an all-female grape variety. Herbert was a crossing partner of the new varieties Buffalo and Pontiac; an open-pollinated seedling is President. The frost-hardy vine is cultivated in the US state of New York and in Canada as table grape. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
