The white grape variety is a new variety between Queen of the vineyards x Sultanina(Sultana). Synonyms are California 1253 F 21, Perlet, Perleta, Perletta and Szertendrei Magvatlon. The cross was made in 1936 at the Agricultural Experiment Station of the University of California by the breeder Harold P. Olmo (1909-2006). The variety was a cross-breeding partner in the new varieties Aron, Augusta (3), Dawn Seedless, Evita Blanche, Exalta and Helios (2). This versatile vine is used as a wine press and table grape, as well as for raisins. It is cultivated on all continents in numerous countries around the world, including Germany and Austria. In 2010, however, only one hectare was designated for Peru (statistics Kym Anderson).
