Old local Bulgarian pear cultivars

D. Serbezova, S. Gandev, I. Krishkova
Old local pear cultivars in our country are widely distributed. They can be found as independent trees and rarely in plantations. The most economic important are: ‘Echmenka’, ‘Eniseyka’, ‘Kargiya’, ‘Zhyltak’, ‘Mehmedka’, ‘Karamanets’, ‘Ingirka’, ‘Vodnik’ and ‘Suliya’. All cultivars have vigorous growth, except ‘Ingirka’, which has a moderate growth. Early ripening cultivars ‘Echmenka’ (18 g), ‘Kargiya’ (29 g) are very small, and late ripening (in September). Large are ‘Vodnik’ (up to 300 g), ‘Suliya’, ‘Karamanets’ and ‘Mehmedka’, with a weight of about 150 g. Satisfactory scab resistance is for ‘Echmenka’, ‘Kargiya’, ‘Ingirka’, ‘Vodnik’ and ‘Suliya’, and highly sensitive are ‘Eniseyka’, ‘Zhyltak’, ‘Mehmedka’ and ‘Karamanets’. All are yielded cultivars.
