The white grape variety comes from Hungary; the name means "Green of Buda" (district of Budapest). Synonyms are Budai, Zöld Budai, Zöld Szölö, Zöldfehér and Zöldszölö. The medium-ripening vine is susceptible to Botrytis and wrong mildew, It produces full-bodied, yellow-colored white wines with aromas of green apples and vegetal Grade. The variety was once counted west of the Danube to the most important varieties, but the stock was in the 1870s by phylloxera severely decimated. Today it is only in small stocks on the north side of the Balaton (Lake Balaton) and in the area Somló grown. This is mostly done for fertilization in the vicinity of the purely female grape variety Kéknyelü, The acreage in 2010 was six hectares.
