Achlada (Greek: Αχλάδα, Bulgarian: Крушоради, Krushoradi, Macedonian Slavic: Крушоради, Krušoradi) is a village in the Florina regional unit, Greece. It was previously known as Κρουσοράτη (Krousorati) or Κρουσουράτη (Krousourati) until it was renamed by Greek authorities in 1926.[2]


The settlement was mentioned in an Ottoman tax register (defter) of 1626-1627, under the name of Krushorad, and was described as having sixty-one non-Muslim households.[3] The Russian slavist Victor Grigorovich recorded Krushorade (Крушораде) as mainly Bulgarian village in 1845.[4] The population of the village was under the supremacy of the Bulgarian Exarchate in the beginning of the 20th century. The "La Macédoine et sa Population Chrétienne" survey by Dimitar Mishev concluded that the Christian population in 1905 was composed of 760 Bulgarian Exarchists.[5]
