  1. Sultana

    The sultana is a "white", oval seedless grape variety also called the sultanina, Thompson Seedless, Lady de Coverly, and oval-fruited Kishmish. It is assumed to originate from the Asian part of the Ottoman Empire. In some countries, especially Commonwealth countries, it is also the name given to the raisin made from it; such sultana raisins are often called simply sultanas or sultanis. These are typically larger than Zante currants, and the Thompson variety is smaller than "normal" raisins. In the USA, the name "raisin" is applied to all dried grapes, so that the breakfast cereal known "Sultana Bran" in Australia and the United Kingdom is called Raisin Bran in the United States. The origin of the Sultana Grape is Manisa, Turkey. Thompson Sultana raisins are small, sweet and have a golden colour. Another seedless grape variety from the former Ottoman Empire, the round-fruited Kishmish, is also called the sultana.
