It contains genes from Vitis labrusca, Vitis rotundifolia and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in North Carolina in 1954. She was crossing partner in the new breeding Regalé. The high-yielding vine has bronze-coloured berries with different ripening times on one grape. It is resistant to Pierce Disease and moderately resistant to frost, but susceptible to botrytis. The variety produces white wines with aromas of apples and pears, which are used as blends, but are also developed as a varietal. It is also used as a table grape. There are small areas under cultivation in the US states of Alabama, North Carolina and Texas. However, no stocks were reported in 2010 (Kym Anderson)
