Lilla

The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Villard Blanc x (Pannonia Kinsce x Mathiász János Diadala). It contains genes of Vitis berlandieri, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed by the breeder József Csizmazia in Eger (Hungary). The name was given after a female figure popular in Hungary in the cycle of poems by the poet Mihály Csokonai Vitéz (1773-1805). The early ripening, frost hardy variety is resistant to both types of mildew. It is used as a table grape.
