The white grape variety is a new breed between Kövidinka x Pinot Gris. Synonyms are K 6 and Kecsemét 6, which was crossed in Hungary in 1950 by the breeders Andreas Kurucz and István Kwaysser. The medium to late ripening vine is resistant to drought and moderately resistant to botrytis. It produces fresh, relatively alcohol-rich white wines of simple quality. The variety is mainly grown in the Hungarian areas of Badacsony, Etyek-Buda and Kunság. In 2016, 44 hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
