Well, I'm not familiar with either of those plums, but I am familiar with transliterated words from other alphabets, and I'd be astonished if those weren't just different transliterations of the same Cyrillic name.

Plum question.  Are Obilinaya and Obilnaja plum the same thing?  They're both from Russia.  Dr. Bob Anderson, (retired) Cornell, recommended Obilinaya for New York but doesn't mention anything about Obilnaja.  I had assumed they were the same, are they?  Is it possible it's just a variant in spelling?
