2004-0092 Auf dem Markte in Orenburg. Die aufgestapelten Früchte sind Wassermelonen – hier Arbusen genannt. Aus dieser. Mit recht gutem Erfolge werden sie in der Nähe von Orenburg und Pokrovka, wo mehr sandiger Boden ist, gezogen. Durch grösse und gutem Geschmack zeichnen sich besonders aus die Wassermelonen von Iletskaja – Seschtschita (bei den Salzgruben 40 Werst südlich von Orenburg.). Das Ernte Ergebniss hängt viel von den Frührjahrs- und Spätjahrs Frosten ab. Auf der Orenburger Mennoniten Siedlung sind nicht oft gute Erfolge erzielt worden. Die hier oft halbreif bleibenden Arbusen werden in Fässer eingelegt und halten sich gut bis zum Frühjahr. Im Spätherbst bezahlte man für eine gute Arbuse 1/2 Million Rubel. (6 bis 8 cents).”; ca. 1920 Russia – World War I – Revolution, Civil War
