Muscat Bouschet

The red grape variety is a new cross between Muscat Fleur d'Oranger x Petit Bouschet. The parentage was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2012 (however, on the basis of only 20 DNA markers; see Molecular genetics). Synonyms are Buse Muskotaly, Muskat Bouchet and Voeroes Buse. The cross was made in France in 1857 by the breeder Henri Bouschet. The variety was a crossing partner in the new varieties Bíborkadarka, Dunaj, Kurucvér and Magyarfrankos. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
