Diospyros (genus) (Ebenaceae (family), Ericales (order), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Genus containing around 500 species of deciduous or evergreen trees and shrubs, generally native to the tropics. They are commonly known as ebony or persimmon trees. The leaves, which lack teeth, are usually borne alternately on opposite sides of the twig. The fruit is a large juicy berry with 1 to 10 seeds. Some members of the genus are valuable for their timber; others are cultivated for their handsome foliage or edible fruit. The wood was used by the ancient kings of India for scepters, sculptures, and drinking cups, because it was believed to prevent poisoning. Herodotus states that the Ethiopians every three years sent a tribute of 200 logs of ebony to Persia.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 包含了大約500種落葉性或常綠喬木和灌木的屬,通常為熱帶地區的原生種。一般而言,柿樹又名烏木(ebony)或柿子樹(persimmon tree)。其缺乏葉齒的樹葉通常在細枝的兩側交替生長。其果實是大型多汁的漿果,具有1到10顆種子。此屬某些品種的木材具有價值性;其他品種則因其優美樹葉或可食果實而為人所栽種。印度古代的帝王們因為相信此木材能防止中毒,因此運用此木材來製作權杖、雕塑品以及飲用水盛裝杯具。古希臘歷史學家希羅多德(Herodotus)曾說過,衣索比亞人每隔3年就會向波斯進貢200條烏木的原木。
