The new cultivar of grape originated from a hand-pollinated cross of ‘Dunstan-210’ (female parent, not patented) and ‘Black Monukka’ (male parent, not patented) made in 1970. The seedlings fruited in the summer of 1973 in a vineyard near Clarksville, Ark. and one was selected for its potential as a table grape for utilization in the southern United States. The original vine was tested as ‘Ark. 1400’. The new cultivar of grapevine is a white, seedless table grape which provides advancements in Pierce's Disease tolerance (Xylella fastidiosa Wells et al.) for the southern region of the United States. This cultivar produces large, attractive fruit clusters with berries that have a neutral flavor and palatable, thin skin.
