The white grape variety originates from the border region 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 northern Greece. The late ripening, high-yielding vine is sensitive to frost, susceptible to powdery and downy mildew, but resistant to drought and botrytis. It produces simple, low-acid white wines and is also used as a table grape. The endangered variety is cultivated in the Bulgarian province of Blagoevgrad. In 2010, however, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson).
