Georgian term or phrase: როგორც ხეჭეჭური, ქვაზე დასათხლეში
This is a line from a poem called ციცო by მურამ ლებანიძე, and it gets lots of hits on google, so I'm assuming it's quite famous.

I know that ხეჭეჭური is a type of pear, and that ქვა is a stone or rock, obviously, but what is დასათხლეში? And following on from that, what does the whole phrase mean?

Thanks very much in advance.

English translation:Like khechechuri pear to hit on stone to burst
Explanation:
Yes, this is one of the well-known poems from Murman Lebanidze's poetry. The meaning of "დასათხლეში" in this context is to hit something down to burst. The author uses comparison to compare a young woman (Tsitso) with big breast and curvy body shapes with khechechuri pear so much ripe that would burst immediately if hit on a stone. That's right, khechechuri is a sort of pear, sweet and juicy.
