Gablits on hazelnut trees

Gablits distinguishes between "волошские орехи / Aveline / Noisettier franc" and "грецкие орехи / Noyer / Nux Juglans" but at some point in the 19th century the former became obsolete. "Aveline" and "noisettier" refer to hazel trees, but the Russian word for hazelnut (both today and in the registers) is фундук (funduk). 

What Gablits seems to identify as hazelnuts grow in coastal gardens, particularly near Yalta. They do also grow near Bahcesaray in two varieties: one round, small, and "quite oily," and the other a common forest nut. (see page 72)
