The white grape variety originates from Spain. Synonyms are Casta de Montúo, Firmissima, Getibi, Granadina, Jetibi, Lorca, Morata, Mantuo Basto, Morata, Moravita, Moravita Portugais, Perrera, Perrunas, Perruno Común, Perruno de Arcos, Perruno de la Sierra, Perruno de Sierra, Perruno Duro, Perruno Duro de Roxas Clemente, Perruno Fino, Perruno Tierno, Peruno Duro de Roxas Clement, Rochas, Royal, Royal Madrid, San Jeronimo, Tribu Perrunos, Vidueño and Vidueño Blanco. It should not be confused with the variety Zalema (synonym Perruna) due to synonyms that seem to indicate it. The variety was first mentioned in 1792 by the agronomist Cristóbal Conde Medina (1726-1798) as occurring in Extremadura. In 1807, the botanist Simon de Rojas Clemente y Rubio (1777-1827) described the three varieties Perruno Duo with white berries, Perruno Común or Perruno Pierrot with reddish berries and Perruno Negro with black berries.
