Why Have You Ever Eaten Lotus Fruit?

For the advanced Greeks, the lotus natural product is the Japanese persimmon, which looks a great deal like a substantial, smooth, bald peach. I've seen it developing in gardens in the area of Lakonia in the Peloponnese, Greece. Actually, I'm not a devotee of this specific lotus natural product, it's dry and leaves your mouth feeling just as it truly needs water. It tastes similar to vanilla. 

Having tasted this natural product it is difficult to trust that it was this that so enchanted Odysseus and his team of travelers. Obviously, it is sensible to assume that the antiquated Greek legend remained nearby to his country, yet it is improbable, given the quantity of years it clearly took him to return home after the Trojan war. 

It is considerably more likely that he made a trip to Asia and experienced the consecrated lotus. The consecrated lotus, so Homer wrote in Book 9 of the Odyssey, made Odysseus and his supporters overlook the reason for their excursion, which is the reason a few observers have recommended that the lotus eaters shared of the opium poppy. 

Notwithstanding, in the event that you view the seed cases you will see they look like those of the opium poppy. Each unit holds around 24 seeds. In Cambodia, these are esteemed as an exceptionally delicious tidbit! 

The lotus plant is additionally esteemed for its restorative properties, as it contains nuciferine and aporphine, which are morphine-like substances. This shows the rest of Lethe may well be incited if the plant is ingested. No big surprise Odysseus too so long to return home. 

Herodotus, the Father of History, felt that the lotus eaters were occupants of the Libyan seaside region. Be that as it may, Herodotus isn't generally a dependable source. In the old world eating the product of the lotus was accepted to cause neglect. Regardless of whether this was previously or after Homer composed the Odyssey is available to address. 

Maybe the lotus eaters never truly existed. In any case, they have absolutely caught the creative energies of ages. The English artist, Alfred Lord Tennyson, composed a lyric The Lotos - Eaters about them and the possibility of them additionally caught Edith Wharton's creative ability. as can be found in her novel, 'The Age of Innocence'. Devotees of Rick Riordan books will certainly review the topic of the Lotus Eaters in his 'Camp Half-Blood Chronicles.' 

On the off chance that you are sufficiently interested to attempt the Greek lotus, make a beeline for the Peloponnese in harvest time. I have seen the natural product still on trees in winter (nobody appears to reap it). Be that as it may, you should request that consent attempt the lotus natural product. as it is developed in the greenhouses of private homes.
