a late-ripening table variety of grapes. It is also known as the Aleppo, Datiede-Beirut, and Aphiz-Ali grape. It originated in Turkey. The Karaburnu grape is cultivated in Bulgaria, Turkey, Italy, and the USSR. It is grown in the Moldavian SSR, the Ukrainian SSR, and the Kirghiz SSR. There are long-range plans for the cultivation of this grape in Transcaucasia and the Kazakh SSR, as well as in certain regions of the RSFSR. The fruit is large (27 mm long; 20 mm wide), oblong, greenish white, and golden. Its thick, crunchy, sugary pulp has a pleasant taste.
