Mac Candless

Synonym for the Jacquez grape variety; see there.

The red grape variety originates from the USA. Synonyms are Troya (Australia); Jacquez, Jacquet (France); Tintiglia (Italy); Lenoir (Mexico); Alabama, Black El Paso, Black July, Black Spanish, Blue French, Blue French Grape, Burgundy, Cigar Box Grape, Clarence, Devereaux, El Paso, French Grape, Jack, Jacques, Jaquez, July Cherry, Long Laliman, Longworth's Ohio, Mac Candless, Madeira, Segar Box, Sherry of the South, Springstein, Sumpter, Thurmond, Tintiglia, Warren (USA); Zakez and Zsake. It shares many of these synonyms with the two varieties Devereaux and Ohio. Possibly these are related or even identical. The parentage is not clear, no DNA analyses are known. It is said to be a presumably natural cross between the American species Vitis aestivalis and Vitis cinerea, and possibly an unknown European Vitis vinifera. The US botanist Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913) later assigned the hybrid to the species Vitis bourquina (ex wild vine Vitis aestivalis x Vitis cinerea). It was a crossing partner in the new variety Black Herbemont.
