Kruske pocetkom Septembra.

Pogled preko ograde, na drvo kruske u komsijinom dvoristu.

Kruska (Pyrus) je rod drvenastih biljaka iz familije Rosaceae, ciji se istoimeni plodovi koriste u ishrani ljudi. Vrste ovog roda rastu u umerenim predelima Evrope, Azije i Afrike. Drvece je srednje visine (10-17m), uglavnom listopadno, sa prostim i naizmenicno rasporedjenim listovima (duzine 212 cm). Plod je specijalan oblik bobice pomum, sa jednoslojnim ili viseslojnim epidermisom i cesto brojnim sklereidima.

U srpskom narodnom predanju kruska je smatrana za zlo drvo i drvo zlih demona. Prema verovanju ispod starih krusaka se skupljaju djavoli, demoni i vestice. Takodje se verovalo da na krusku pada ala koja satire grozdje po vinogradima kao i da se na njoj moze naci i smrt.

Od krusaka se pravi i vrlo kvalitetna rakija - kruska (kruskovaca), a najpoznatija kruskova rakija je od sorte viljamovke.
Osim za rakiju, kruske se koriste i za pripremu kompota, dzemova, pekmeza, slatka, kao i dodatak za razne vocne kolace i torte.



Pears in early September.

View over the fence, at the pear tree in the neighbor's yard.

Pear (Pyrus) is a genus of woody plants from the family Rosaceae, whose fruits of the same name are used in human nutrition. Species of this genus grow in temperate regions of Europe, Asia and Africa. The trees are of medium height (10-17 m), mostly deciduous, with simple and alternately arranged leaves (212 cm long). The fruit is a special form of berry - pomum, with a single-layer or multi-layer epidermis and often numerous scleroids.

In Serbian folklore, the pear was considered an "evil tree" and a tree of evil demons. It is believed that devils, demons and witches gather under old pears. It was also believed that ala fell on the pear, destroying the grapes in the vineyards, and that death could be found on it.
Pears are also used to make very high-quality brandy - pear (kruskovaca), and the most famous pear brandy is made from the viljamovka variety.
In addition to brandy, pears are also used to prepare compotes, jams, marmalades, sweets, as well as an addition to various fruit cakes and pies.
