Nuts and fruits are indispensable in the Chinese New Year's goods. What are the American almonds, Hawaii walnuts, Brazilian pine nuts, California happy fruit, Fiji fruit, New Zealand Qiqi, etc. These dry fruits or fruits with the name of the place of origin sound are much high than ordinary nuts and fruits. In fact, these are routines! It has been deeply deceived us for many years. Today, let's take a good name for those names and dried fruits.
The American almonds originally Asia, Hawaii walnuts from Australia, Brazilian pine nuts are actually produced in the Himalayan Mountain in Asia, and the California Happy Guogu was originally a plant in the Middle East, Fiji has never been Fiji, and New Zealand is strange. My hometown is China \u0026 Hellip; \u0026 Hellip;
1. The American big almond \u0026 mdash; \u0026 mdash; is actually Basanimu, Xinjiang
American almond The almonds produced in the United States have actually no such plants that can be produced in the past. The real body of the American almond plants is called tonsils. It is a plant of the genus Rosaceae, also known as Badan apricot. It is native to Xiaoya Minor, Syria, and Iran. The Xinjiang region in my country is also one of the place of origin. The tonsil kernels are commonly known as Badan or Badama in Xinjiang, and the tonsils in Persian are called Badam. This name is actually from the Persian name for tonsils. However, this plant is not distributed in North America. Similarly, although the name of this dried fruit is almond, strictly speaking, it is not apricot.
Tanton is an ancient traditional dried fruit tree species. It has been planted in West Asia and Central Asia. Tonic can be edible from their nuclear fruits. Due to long -term cultivation, many types of consumption, medicinal and ornamental types have been produced around the world.
Compared with the names of tonsils and Badanmu, \u0026 ldquo; American big almond \u0026 rdquo; After planting tonsils, by the development and cultivation of breeding and commercial species, the American almond industry will be formed by the 1980s, and the United States has become the largest producer of tonsil kernels in the world. After the commercial development, the tonsils have a very foreign product name \u0026 ldquo;
2. \u0026 ldquo; Brazilian pine nuts \u0026 rdquo; \u0026 mdash; \u0026 mdash; from the Himalayas
Brazilians said that this fruit has never seen \u0026 ldquo; Not growing in Brazil. All pine plants throughout the earth are actually distributed in the northern hemisphere. In other words, there is no pine tree in the southern hemisphere. (sceneIt was very embarrassing for a time ~)
There is a tree in Brazil, which is called Brazilian Pine in English. The translation is indeed Brazilian pine, but this plant is not pine at all, but Nanyang Sugi. The English name of Brazilian pine nut is Chilgoza Pine. This Chilgoza is a place name, from Uldu, and a Mandarin in Pakistan. The real name of Brazilian pine nuts is Tibet Pippi. It is a plant of Songke pine. It is distributed in the northwest of the Himalayas from India, Pakistan to Afghanistan. It is also distributed in my country. It is mainly produced in Zada \u200b\u200bMountain in western Tibet.
The growth environment of Tibet's white skin pine is very strict. Although the taste is first -class, the output is not high. Most of the Brazilian pine nuts we have eaten today comes from the virgin forests of the Ximalaya country. This pine nut is one of the most important economic crops of local tribal members. Tibet's white leather seeds are very expensive, with a price of $ 20 to $ 53 per kilogram.
\u0026 ldquo; Brazilian pine nut \u0026 rdquo; The name of the product does not have to be accurate, but it must make it look noble, especially the pine nuts to sell such expensive things. It must have a particularly rare exotic feeling. Therefore, in China, the pine nuts of Tibet White Pine pine were promoted by merchants by merchants. Become \u0026 ldquo; Brazil pine nuts \u0026 rdquo;.
3. California happy fruit \u0026 mdash; \u0026 mdash; passengers from Central Asia
\u0026 ldquo; Cracking, revealing the red fruit in the green, so there was \u0026 ldquo; happy fruit \u0026 rdquo; this very festive and auspicious product name. When Happy Guo first entered the Chinese market, in order to show Bai Fumei and Gao Gao, it also had another product name, which is \u0026 ldquo; American Happy Guo \u0026 rdquo; or \u0026 ldquo; Happy fruit is a plant in California.
In fact, the tree that can grow happily produced is not produced in the United States, but from Central Asia. This kind of nut was cultivated and consumed in Central Asia a long time ago. Archeology indicates \u0026 ldquo; Happy Fruit \u0026 RDQUO; It has become a common food for locals as early as 6750 BC. During the Roman period, Happy Guo entered Rome from Syria. To this day, Iran is still the world's largest happy fruit producer.
From 1904 ~ 1905, Americans introduced cold -resistant \u0026 ldquo; happy fruit \u0026 rdquo; to California, and gradually began to develop happy fruit planting industry. The history of planting happiness in the United States is actually not long. It was only planted in California in the 1950s. However, happy fruit will become a dried fruit industry, it is indeed inseparable from American businessmenThe vigorous promotion, California growers have been promoted and have achieved great commercial success in more than 20 years. But in any case, Happy Guo is indeed an Asian plant.
4. \u0026 ldquo; Hawaii \u0026 rdquo; \u0026 mdash; \u0026 mdash; Originally produced in Australia
\u0026 ldquo; One of the nuts you eat, but it is not originally produced by Hawaii, but Australia. Its name is Australian nuts. This plant was first discovered by British botanist and explorer Alan \u0026 Middot; Canningan was discovered in the rainforest in southern Australia Bridbore in 1828. Although the locals have always collected such nuts, but in view of Australia's poisonous plants, Kanningan did not dare to try its taste at the time.
Westerners discovered \u0026 ldquo; Australian nuts \u0026 rdquo; delicious, can eat and record, in the Brisbane Botanical Garden in Australia. In 1858, there was a naughty boy in the botanical garden. After eating the Australian nuts quoted in the botanical garden, he had been jumping alive, and there was no adverse reaction at all, so everyone knew that this fruit was really delicious. Later in Australia, it was tried in a small area. Later, because of \u0026 ldquo; Australian Nuts \u0026 RDQUO; Once widened in Hawaii, gradually \u0026 ldquo; Hawaii \u0026 rdquo; replaced its original name \u0026 ldquo; Australian Nuts \u0026 rdquo;
5. New Zealand Qiji \u0026 mdash; \u0026 mdash; kiwi from the mountains of China
Before 1904, New Zealand did not have a world -renowned fruit \u0026 ldquo; Kiwi \u0026 rdquo;. That year, a lady named Isabel brought back the delicious kiwi cited by Yichang in Hubei back to New Zealand. Since then, the history of kiwi commercialization has started. Because this kind of fruit developed by New Zealand gardening cultivators is brownish yellow, there are short fluff on the outer skin, the residual fruit handle is exactly like \u0026 ldquo; This spread throughout the world.
The name of kiwi has been in ancient times. Li Shizhen in the Ming Dynasty was very clear in the \"Compendium of Materia Medica\": \u0026 ldquo; its shape like pear, its color like a peach, and kitcque loved, so there are all names. \u0026 rdquo; kiwi has developed from pure wild plants to the popular market fruits today, and has important business value. Kiwi introduced from China has been developed in New Zealand, forming a huge industry, bringing wealth to New Zealand.
When it enters the Chinese market again, facing this tall waterAs a result, most people mistakenly believe that it originated in New Zealand. However, today, kiwi has also become an important cultivation fruit in China. We also have unparalleled kiwi resources. Therefore, in the future, the world's kiwi market and variety development must return to its homeland.
6. Fiji \u0026 mdash; \u0026 mdash; are all Chinese -style translated pots
Fiji, many people are not familiar. \u0026 ldquo; Fiji fruit \u0026 rdquo; It is a tropical and subtropical fruits, because the New Zealanders are cultivated by commercialized varieties, and the fruits are sweet and juicy, and the smell is also known as the king of New Zealand fruits. However, Fiji has nothing to do with Fiji, and its origin is not New Zealand. It is native to Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina in South America. The reason why it is called Fiji is because its former Latin literature is named Feijoa Sellowiana, because of this Feijoa, Wangwen business, misunderstood Fiji.
Fiji also has a name called Fei oil fruit. Philippine oil is cultivated in Yunnan and South China in my country. As a niche fruit, this \u0026 ldquo; fruit tree \u0026 rdquo; mainly used in garden greening. Of course, compared to the ordinary Philippines, plus a geographical name of 10,000 miles away, its value is different immediately.
