"However, it is likely that one grape stands out as a likely candidate: the Kish Mish, also known as Pusa seedless, Cekirdecsis, Sultanina, Wu he hei and dozens of other synonyms for the grape we know as good old Thompson seedless, a grape we use mainly as raisins or for eating fresh. As it is a variety of Middle Eastern origins, it is likely that some portion of the millions of acres planted in the Middle East and surrounding areas (the “stans”, north Africa, Iran, Iraq, Greece,Turkey, China, etc.) are planted to Thompson."

Also called Qashlamish over here. Used for raisins.
