Blanc du Bois (BLAHNK due BWAA)


A white hybrid developed in 1968 at the University of Florida and now grown in Florida, Texas, and throughout the Gulf states. Unlike many grapes, it is well suited to humid climates. Blanc du Bois also has good resistance to Pierce’s Disease. Blanc du Bois’ genetic parentage is complex, being a cross of an American hybrid belonging to the muscadine family with the red grape cardinal, itself a cross of two vinifera grapes: flame seedless and ribier.
