Khvalynsk Souvenirs
December 16, 2015 02:48


Khvalynsk apples are incredibly popular in Saratov Oblast: they are juicy, soft and very sweet.

Petrov-Vodkin describes them this way: “And our apples are not like Antonovka apples from Tambov, you can hit those with bricks and will not ruin them - our fruit is delicate: anise apples are like velvet, they need a lot of care, if you shake them from the gardens to the sands, there will be enough defective fruits on the Shchukin market”.

By the way, the book of Petrov-Vodkin is also a popular souvenir. The books can be purchased either in the art gallery of his name or in the house-museum, and they cost about twenty roubles each.
