The white grape variety comes from the border area Bulgaria / Greece; the name means "girl" in Greek. Synonyms are Breza, Breznik, Govedina, Keratsouda, Keratsuda, Keratuda, Mirizlivka and Tsarevitsa. It probably originated on the banks of the river Struma / Strymónas, which runs through southwestern Bulgaria and north Greece. The late-ripening, high-yielding vine is sensitive to frost, prone to the real and fake mildew but resistant to drought and Botrytis, It produces simple, low-acid white wines and is also called table grape used. The endangered variety is grown in the Bulgarian province of Blagoevgrad. In 2010, however, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson ).
