Hovenia Dulcis, the oriental raisin tree, is a hardy tree found from Asia, over Eastern China and Korea, to the Himalayas(up to 2,000 m), growing preferably in a sunny position on moist sandy or loamy soils. The tree has been introduced as an ornamental tree in several countries, and the fruit is also edible.
The fleshy rachis of the infructescence is sweet, fragrant, and edible raw or cooked. Dried, they look and taste like raisins. An extract of the seeds, bough, and young leaves can be used as a substitute for honey and for making wine and candy. An extract of the leave contains hodulcine, a glycoside that exhibits an anti-sweat activity. Ampelopsin is a flavanonol found in H. Dulcis and is credited with hepatoprotective effects. The timber is delicate and complex and used for construction and fine furniture.
