Niabell

The red grape variety is an interspecific new breeding between Campbell Early x Niagara White, the name was formed from the parents. Synonyms are California L 11-3 and Niabell (4N). It contains genes from Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1942 by the breeder Dr. Harold P. Olmo (1909-2006) at the California Agricultural Experiment Station and released in 1958. The variety is resistant to powdery mildew. It is mainly used to produce semi-sweet wines with foxton, but mainly table grapes. The variety is common in many US states. There is also an early ripening version called Early Niabell (also California L 11-2). However, no stocks were reported for either variety in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
