The white variety comes from the Middle East; maybe Israel, Synonyms are Geant de Palestine, Neguelescol, Nehelescol, Palestina Bianca, Raisin de Jericho, Raisin de la Palestine, Syrian, Terra Promessa and Uva di Jerusalemme. The vine is characterized by extremely large grapes. In the Bible is described in the 4th book of Moses (Numbers) in Chap. 13/23 reports of the exploration of the land of Canaan, with which Moses had commissioned some scouts. Here they found a huge bunch of grapes: from there they came into the grape valley. There they cut off a vine with a bunch of grapes and carried them in pairs on a pole, along with some pomegranates and figs. According to an (improbable, not verifiable) thesis, the variety should be a descendant. In Romania simple white wines are made from it. In French Languedoc it is from the winery Mas de Daumas-Gassac grown experimentally. The variety is also called table grape used.
