Sughera – Quercus suber – Fagaceae family Cork oak

An evergreen, spontaneously found all around the western basin of the Mediterranean sea. The Cork oak has a normal tree growth, with a height that can reach 20m and loose and expansive foliage. It has a life expectation of 250 – 300 years, less for the specimens exploited for their cork. The fruit is a green oval acorn which, in maturing, becomes brown, length 3cm with a very short apex. The cup is a bit more conical than that of the Holm oak, and covers the acorn for a variable length, between a third and half of it, with a scaly greenish grey.

The acorn was of nutritional use for many populations: in Europe the flour was used for sweet confectionary and bread in the famine periods. In Spain, even today, they make confectionary from the acorn flour. The tree was excellent for all the populations in ancient times. In Greece it represented the holiness of the earth, like Zeus was the God of Mount Olympus.
