This inter-specific deeply colored red grape is cold hardy, early ripening and tends to be resistant to fungal diseases. It classified as a teinturier, which indicates both the skins and the flesh of grape provide a deep red color. Although it arrived in the United States in 1946, the Maréchal Foch was bred in France in the 1910s. It was renamed in honor of the French Marshall Ferdinand Foch. This grape is grown across the Midwest and Canada.
