A considerable trade has sprung up of late years between the Trebizond district and Great Britain in the article of Hazel-nuts, which are a very important source of wealth on the coast extending from a little south of Batoum to Kerassund. Upwards of £20,000 worth per annum are shipped to England, the chief supplies of the best nuts coming from Tireboli, between Kerassund and Trebizond. Walnut trees, too, are largely grown in the forests of Lazistan, partly for the sake of the nuts, but principally for the walnut tree knobs, which are much in request in France. - The Times.
