The white grape variety comes from Moldova. The approximately 50 synonyms refer to the vine's great age and once widespread use. Some of them are Brauner Veltliner, fig-leafed fig-leafed imperial vine, Fuerjmony, Fuerjmony Fehér, Fuerymony, Fuerymony Fehér, imperial vine, Kabak Iouziomiou, Tidva, Tigrosa, Tigva, Tigvi, Tikveno Grozde, Tikveno Grozdet, Tiudva, Tivda, Tivga, Törok Bajor, Quail's Head Grape and White Ice Soup. In spite of apparently indicative synonyms or morphological similarities, it should not be confused with the Azerbaijani variety Tebrizi. The origin (parentage) is unknown. It is a purely female variety. Nothing is known about a possible genetic relationship to the variety Braunweißer Veltliner (with partly the same synonyms). According to DNA analyses she is a parent of the variety Kharistvala Kolkhuri. In 2010 no stock was reported (Kym Anderson).
