Chinese yam(Dioscorea opposita) is called Shan yao (山药) in Chinese. it is also known as huái shān (淮山),  or huái shān yào (淮山药). In Japanese, it is known as nagaimo (lit. 'long yam'; kanji: 長芋; hiragana: ながいも).  In Korea it is called ma (hangul: 마), "sanwu(山芋, 산우)", seoyeo(薯蕷, 서여), or sanyak(山藥, 산약). In Vietnam, the yam is called củ mài or khoai mài.  In the Ilokano language of the northern Philippines it is called tuge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dioscorea_opposita).

 Chinese Red Date Orchard/Jujube Tree/Jujube Fruit
(Ziziphus jujuba Mill), also called Chinese date, red date, Chinese red date or tsao (zao), originated in China and has been cultivated in China for more than 4000 years. Jujube was first introduced into USA in 1837
. Chinese date is very precocious and easy to grow. It can tolerate a wide range of temperatures from - 25 to +125°F. Jujube fruit is rich in vitamin C with 200 to 800 mg/100 g of fresh fruit, 70-100 times higher than grapes and apples, so jujube fruit is also called 'Natural Vc Pill'. Eating a few fresh red date fruits will meet the USDA recommended daily Vc requirement. Jujube fruit also have high total phenol contents and total antioxidant activity (10 Amazing Health Benefits of Jujube Fruit) .
