The name was given after the town in Pennsylvania. The hybrid was crossed in the USA by the breeder W. E. Hulings at the beginning of the 19th century. It was mentioned in 1830 by R. W. Prince in the documentation "Treatise on the Vine". The variety is cultivated in the US state of New York, among other places. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
