The red grape variety (also bei Chun) is an interspecific new breed between Muscat d'Hamburg x Amurensis ( Vitis amurensis ruprecht ). The crossing of the hybrid took place in 1954 at the Northern Chinese Viticultural Institute near Beijing with the participation of German experts. Other varieties with the same parents were Beimei, Beihong and Beiquan.
