One tasty variety grows along the Kacha and Kabarda rivers. The "dulia," which ripens in late summer and offers an excellent taste, grows along the Indala and Kacha rivers. Above all others is the winter pear that grows near Alupka and ripens in late autumn.
By contrast, the pears of Karasubazar resemble bergamot and, as forest fruit, have a less pleasing taste. (see page 70)
