Discover the grape variety: Black Monukka
A very old variety of table grape. It is believed to be a cross between the khourmany kizil or ichkimar and the sultana. In reality, the name Monukka covers several varieties - not all of which are apyrenic - that are somewhat similar and can be found in Armenia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Moldavia, Italy, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iran, South Africa, the United States (California), etc. In France, the black Monukka is practically not cultivated and is mainly of interest to amateur gardeners. - Synonyms: monucca in South Africa and the United States ..., monukka i siah in Afghanistan, black kischmish, kichmiche, kishmish chernyi, russian seedless, sultanina nera in Italy. This is not true because black sultanina does exist but it is very rare (for all the synonyms of the grape varieties, click here!)
