The early to medium ripening, high-yielding vine is susceptible to both powdery mildew and botrytis, but resistant to drought. It yields low-alcohol, low-acid, slightly aromatic white wines that are mainly used as blends for resinous wines such as retsina. It is also used as table grape. The variety is cultivated in the regions of Thessaly, Macedonia and Thrace. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
