PostHeaderIcon ARBUTUS

Arbutus (Arbutus unedo L., 1753) is a shrub or little tree which belongs to the Ericaceae famliy. It is present in the West Mediterranean area. The origin of the name, probably due to the bitter taste of the fruit and leaves, comes from the celtic “ar”= bitter and “butus” shrub. From the Greek name  corbezzolo (κόμαρος - pron. kòmaros) come many slang definitions of the plant (Marche, Calabria, Campania), and also the name of the mount Cònero, on whose northern side stands the city of Ancona, comes from this shrub because it is rich with corbezzolo plants.

Fruits ripen the year after the flowering, precisely in autumn. This plant can have at the same time flowers, unripe fruits and ripen fruits and for this reason is particularly ornamental. [Wikipedia]
