#1: The Apricot (абрикос; Prunus Armeniaca) Gablits describes the apricot as likewise ubiquitous, especially around Staryi Krym and Sudak. #2: The Pomegranate (гранат; Punica granatus) Gablits admits that this one is more particular, growing only in the coastal gardens of the south, though they grow wild in the forests as well. The pomegranate is known for its medicinal properties. Any good apothecary would be pleased to get his hands on some. #3: The Red Currant (красная смородина; Ribes rubrum) These are found only at Bahcesaray, though they grow there in large numbers. #4: The Cornelian Cherry (кизил; Cornus mascula) Gablits claims it is absolutely everywhere: in every garden, in every forest, on every mountain. #5: The Hackberry (каркас; Celtis orientalis) Gablits tell us it thrives from Balaklava to Yalta and is happiest on stony southern ground. The berries have medicinal properties.
