Persian oak, is a deciduous oak native in Western Asia.  Not the common oak.  Beautiful wavy foliage and slow growing habit.  It is suitable for medium to large size of space or garden.  Best growing in full sun location in well drained soil.  Very hardy.   USDA Zones:5-10.  Mature size:40’+(H) X 40’+(W).  Propagate by acorns, cuttings or graftings.  Fall foliage is red.  Its acorn image see this link:  http://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/photo/quercus-macranthera-caucasian-oak-acorn-high-res-stock-photography/71666910?Language=en-GB

波斯橡是原生於西亞的落葉喬木.  算是不常見的橡樹之一.  有漂亮波紋缺刻的葉片,生長速度緩慢. 很適合中大型空間或花園來栽種.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高或寬幅為40呎以上.  主要以橡實來繁殖,也可以扦插或嫁接或高壓來繁殖.  秋色聽說是紅色的(如果有機會變色的話),橡實長這樣,還蠻好看的: http://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/photo/quercus-macranthera-caucasian-oak-acorn-high-res-stock-photography/71666910?Language=en-GB

秋天的橡樹Autumn Oak

秋天的橡樹Autumn Oak

So many different pretty oak trees turning colour and producing acorns in autumn. Some autumn foliage will be bright red or red or orange or yellow or not changing colour so it will eventually dry out and become brown.

In some culture, acorns are used as food, eat as nuts for emergency or dried, grind into powder, get the starch with water cook in short time and can make jelly like tofu, with sauce, it is nice and special! I have tried few times.

Some countries their culture believe eating acorns are good for your health–perhaps because of the mighty oak lives strong and long?

秋天橡樹開始葉色轉變結實累累. 橡樹的葉色會轉成鮮紅,或紅,或橘色,或黃色,或不變色然後乾枯後成黃褐色.

有些文化有將橡實當成救荒的乾糧. 橡實可以去殼去皮後磨成粉,它的澱粉可和水煮成布丁一樣的"橡子豆腐",配著清淡沾醬,滋味不錯很特別,我吃過.

有些國家相信吃橡子有益健康且能延年益壽–可能是因為橡樹本身長壽高大的關係吧?
