Possibly Diospyros sp., Kaki fruit tree. Were the trees rather small, in the field overlooking the watercourse? They make tomato-shaped fruits?

It is exactly the same spot and that was my first impression.

However, the flower looked smaller (and more redish) from Diospyros kaki which have cream colour and about 2cm in size. Additionally, nearly all Diospyros kaki where in early fruiting (only one flower found, just in time for a photo). Also the tree was higher (photo is taken with full 4x zoom). On the other hand, the leaves looks like D. kaki.

hupps, I missed this one. However, it is D. but seems not to be kaki, could be virginiana, lotus or whatever. The small trees at your named site are kaki (behind the big Morus and across small Morus)- MWP: we had lunch there close to this place 2 years ago!

Thanks, I will research it up now the genus is confirmed. This was found in the same area of the D kaki (lowest floor :P ) We had a good lunch on Level 1 (or 2) :P

"However, it is D. but seems not to be kaki, could be virginiana, lotus or whatever."

Yes thats what I was thinking too, but suggested the "common" rather than the sp. name of Kaki, maybe it makes similar fruit.
