The white grape variety originates from Greece; the name means "Turkish virgin". Synonyms are Tourcopoula, Turko Paula, Turko Paulo, Rhoditis Kokkinos, Roditis Kokkinos. The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. It should not be confused with the variety Roditis, from which it is genetically different, according to DNA analyses carried out in 2001, despite the synonyms or morphological similarities that seem to indicate this. The pink-berry vine produces white wines with citrus aromas. It is grown in small quantities in the Peloponnese and on the Ionian islands of Corfu and Zakynthos. The variety is also used as table grape. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
