Fetească Shelfă

The white grape variety originates from Romania. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Danesdörfer Königsast, Dünesdörfer Königsast, Königliche Mädchentraube, Königsast, Königstochter (Germany, Austria); Dănășană, Dănășeană, Dăneșană, Dánosi Leányka, 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 should not be confused with Királyleányka, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is the result of a presumably natural cross between Fetească Albă x Frâncușă (thus disproving the presumed paternity of Grasă de Cotnari ). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see Molecular genetics). The variety was a crossing partner of the new variety Astra. There are two varieties with thin-skinned yellowish and thick-skinned yellow-green berries.
