Jerry, Here's what a bag of E. orientalis looks like. Oh, I missed another
synonym, Lotus tree fruit. It is definitely not a Diospyros. Traversing so
many Middle Eastern cultures hasn't helped the list of names.

It sure looks to me like there is a lot of confusion on names. Nothing
new here. The 1st message on the subject refers to cleaning the seed
with his teeth. If the Trebizond Date where D. lotus it could have up to
8 seeds. Jerry Lehman
