There are two new breeds with this name:

Island Belle x Arkansas 1339 (USA)

This red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Island Belle (Campbell Early) x Arkansas 1339. Synonyms are A 1508, Arkansas 1508 and Mars Seedless. Genes from Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera are included. The hybrid was crossed in 1973 by the breeder Jim. N. Moore at the University of Arkansas. The variety is mainly used as table grape but also as wine grape. It produces red wines with a light foxtone. In 2016, two hectares of vineyards were designated in the US state of Kentucky (Kym Anderson statistics).
