Old local Bulgarian pear cultivars
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.
