The white grape variety is a new breed between Hárslevelü x Piros Tramini (Red Traminer = Gewurztraminer ). Synonyms are Eyerfürte, Ezerfurfu, Kecskemét 5 and Miklóstelepi 5. The cross was made in 1950 in Hungary by the breeders András Kurucz and István Kwaysser. The early ripening, productive vine is resistant to frost, but sensitive to drought and prone to Botrytis, It produces alcohol-rich, neutral white wines with a fine acidity. From the late 1970s to the early 1980s, it was grown on a large scale in large socialist companies. The variety is in Hungary on 377 hectares and in Romania grown on 29 hectares. In 2010, a total of 406 hectares of vineyards were shown (Kym Anderson ).
