Kesemek! that's the local name for this beautiful fruit from ebony family, Ebenaceae. you know this by its powdery film coating the fruit and by its mild, fesh and sweet taste. it tastes best when refrigerated.

i had long dreamed to have this plant but the tiny seeds i put on the ground never grew into seedlings.

years later, i saw the trees at Kabanjahe in 2004. they are about 5 m tall with birchlike, gray trunks and yellowish foliage. wonderful slender tree. and i was glad to buy the fresh picked fruits at the local market.

i guess it needs cooler climate to grow. When i have a house of my own, i want to have this tree in my garden.
