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.
