The white grape variety originates from the USA. Synonyms are Bullet, Bullit, Bullitt, Taylor's Bullet, Taylor's Bullitt, Yellow Taylor Vine and Teylor. It is an interspecific, probably natural cross between the species Vitis riparia x Vitis labrusca. It is said to have been found in the mid-19th century by a Judge Taylor in Henry County, Kentucky, and selected by a certain Cobb. It is an all-female grape variety. Direct descendants or open-pollinated seedlings of Taylor are Elvira, Missouri Riesling, Montefiore, Noah and Taylor seedling Blankenhorn.
