Lucullus and cherry

The part of history I like the most is about people, their lives and destiny.About big or small stories that have shaped our world.Like the one about strateg and conquerer, Roman Lucullus and cherry. Famous for many victories at East he brought the first cultivated cherry to Europe, Rome, in 72 b.c.. Romans called it CERASUM, efter the Anatolian town of its origin, Cerasus. Many languages use this root for the name of cherry: cerise, česnja, kirsch, trešnja, ciliege, cherry…Have a look at cherries from My botanical garden and imagine all this history hiding between the green leaves and red fruit! Ave!
