Prokupac

The red grape variety originates from the Balkans; possibly Serbia. Synonyms grouped by country are Zarčin (Bulgaria); Karlahanades, Karnachalades, Karnachalas (Greece); Crnka, Rekovacka Crnka (Croatia); Negotinsko Crno, Nikodimka, Niševka, Majski Čornii, Skopsko Crno (North Macedonia); Majski Cornii (Moldova); Kameničarka, Kamenilarka, Majski Cornii (Russia); Nichevka, Nikodimka, Niševka, Prokopac, Prokupac Black, Prokupac Noir, Prikupats, Prokupec, Prokupka, Rskavac, Surac Plavi, Vinta (Serbia). The Greek variety Karnachalades is possibly identical. This very old variety was very important in Serbia from the Middle Ages onwards, and there are also many varieties with many names that have developed over time. The parentage is unknown. Prokupac was a crossing partner of the new varieties Evita, Jagodinka and Župljanka as well as a parent of the varieties Beala Debela (Bulgaria) and Papazkarasi (Turkey), which presumably developed through natural crossing.
