Gablits on mulberry trees

Mulberries are common in coastal gardens from Balaklava to Sudak, as well as near Bahcesaray and along the Kacha and Kabarda rivers. The Tatars eat them both fresh and dried, and make a syrup of the fruit as well, which is said to have potent medicinal qualities. Silk production is concentrated near Staryi Krym. (see page 71)
