Kracher (Rebsorten)

There are many grape varieties with the name component "Kracher", all of which originate from Austria. The name is possibly due to the hard-skinned berries that "crack" when eaten. It is possible that Gelber Kracher, Grüner Kracher(Grüner Kanigl) and Weißer Kracherare related, but the VIVC catalogue only mentions a descent from Weißer Heunisch (Gouais Blanc) for the former. Partly identical synonyms of the two varieties are Bela Morshina, Belina Prepisana, Fleugler, Gelber Hainer, Gelber Kracher, Grüner Liposhina, Jauer, Javshovez, Kerhlihkobitz, Kerlihkobitz, Kleiner Plavetz, Libovshina, Mehlweiße, Oheimer, Ramulak, Ramuljak, Weiße Kauka and Weiße Kavka. The two varieties were used as wine grapes and table grapes, but no longer have any commercial significance.
