Diospyros Lotus < 君迁子 Jun Qianzi >
Common Name: Lilac Persimmon, Date-plum, Caucasian Persimmon
Binomial name: Diospyros Lotus
The species area extends from East Asia to the west of the Mediterranean, down to Spain. The Date-plum is native to southwest Asia and southeast Europe. It was known to the ancient Greeks as "the fruit of the gods" i.e. Dios pyros (lit. "the fiery blond of Zeus"), hence the scientific name of the genus. Its English name probably derives from Persian Khormaloo literally "Date-Plum", referring to the taste of this fruit which is reminiscent of both plums and dates. This species is one candidate for the "lotus tree" mentioned in The Odyssey: it was so delicious that those who ate it forgot about returning home and wanted to stay and eat lotus with the lotus-eaters.
