The white grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Acrime Maronna, Lacrima Bianca di Maria, Lacrima di Madonna, Lacrime della Madonna, Lacrime di Maria, Lacryma di Maria and Larmi di Maria. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, this is a presumably natural cross between Graeco x Heptakilo (Axina de Tres Bias). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). However, a DNA analysis carried out in 2019 revealed the parenthood of Heptakilo x unknown partners. The vine is used as a table grape. See also a list of all Lacrima varieties.
