The white grape variety is an interspecific cross between wild vines of the species Vitis labrusca x Vitis vinifera. It is an open-pollinated seedling of the variety Diana, which is an open-pollinated seedling of the variety Catawba. The hybrid was selected in 1855 in the US state of New York by the breeder C. W. Grant. The red-berried variety produces white wines with a slightly pronounced Fox tone, which are mainly used for the production of sparkling wine and grape juice. However, it is also used as a table grape. The variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Moore's Diamond, Excelsior and Reliance (2). However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
