KUWAIT, March 20 (KUNA) -- Kuwaiti traditional houses in the old days used to have a Sidr tree (its Scientific name: Ziziphus spina-christi), placed close to the house yard or near the house, and its fruits (Kinar) used to fall inside where children or adults would enjoy eating them.
Children in the neighbors use long sticks to hit the almost fallen and ready fruits Kinar and then, prepare them to eat.
Sidr (associated with the Lote-trees of the Holy Quran) and was also common in the Jordan Valley and around Jerusalem. (end) ana.mb
