According to a legend for the name of the town Krusevo comes from the word pear which in Macedonian translation transcribes as "Krusa".
From the word "Krusa" a new coinage was formed to refer to the town of Krusevo.
But, why the town was named after the fruit pear?
The legend, which is every day told by older Krusevo citizens, goes on to say that in today's town center an pear tree was found.
Further on, when people started coming they referd to their new home as Krusevo derived from "krusa" or pear.
