Gablits on walnut 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). 

The "greek" walnut is ubiquitous, with especially large, shade-producing, trees growing between Balaklava and Alushta. (see page 72)
