Diospyros virginiana (species) (Diospyros (genus), Ebenaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of small or shrubby tree native to North America, from New England to the Midwest, to the South Atlantic and Gulf states. The wild tree has been cultivated for its fruit and wood since prehistoric times by Native Americans. The fruit is round and orange in color. In the American South and Midwest, the fruits are referred to as simply "persimmons," used in cooking and for making brandy. Folklore holds that the fruit is inedible prior to the first frost, but this is untrue. The peculiar astringency of the fruit is due to the presence of a tannin.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 小型或灌木狀喬木物種,原生於北美洲,由美國東北部六州到中西部、再到南大西洋各州、以及墨西哥灣各州地區。美洲印地安人自遠古時代,便種植野生喬木以取用其果實及木材。其果實為圓形、橙色,在美國南部、中西部,其果實被簡稱為「柿」(persimmon),用於烹調及釀造白蘭地。民間傳說認為果實在初霜前不適合食用,但此說法並不屬實,其果實因含有單寧酸而具有特別的收斂性。 
Dutch ..... Een kleine heesterachtige boom die inheems is in Noord-Amerika, in het gebied dat zich uitstrekt van New Engeland tot het middenwesten en de zuidelijke staten aan de Atlantische kust en de Mexicaanse golf. Sinds de prehistorie is deze wilde boom gekweekt door indianen vanwege zijn fruit en hout. De vrucht is rond en oranje. In het zuiden en middenwesten van de Verenigde Staten wordt de vrucht ���persimmon' genoemd en gebruikt om sterkedrank te maken. Het volksgeloof wil dat de vrucht pas eetbaar is na de eerste vorst, maar dat klopt niet. De vrucht bevat tannine en heeft daardoor een adstringerende werking.
