Fetească Regală

The white grape variety comes from Romania. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Danesdörfer Königsast, Dünesdörfer Königsast, Königliche Mädchentraube, Königsast, Königstochter(Germany, Austria); Dănășană, Dănășeană, Dăneșană, Dunășană, Galbenă de Ardeal, Galbenă di Ardeal, Gelbenă de Ardeal, Fetească de Danes, Fetească Korolevskaia, Fetească Muscatnaia, Fetească Muskatnaia, Fetească Regale, Fetească Regola(Romania); Pesecká Leánka(Slovakia); Erdei Sarga,(Hungary). It must not be confused with the Királyleányka variety, despite the fact that synonyms or morphological similarities seem to indicate it. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Fetească Albă x Frâncușă (this also disproves the presumed paternity of the variety Grasă de Cotnari ). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The variety was a crossing partner in the new breeding of Astra. There are two varieties with thin-skinned yellowish and thick-skinned yellow-green berries.
