Gablits on almond trees

Found in gardens around Bahcesaray along the Alma River, along the Kacha, in some coastal gardens, and in the area around Yenikale. They are rare. "Tatars attached a low value to them" and invested little energy in their cultivation. "It would be advantageous, however, to cultivate the best sort - the kind grown in Persia, which has a shell soft enough to be peeled with one's fingers and a nut that is tasty and sweet." (see page 75)
