Quercus infectoria (Alleppo oak, gall oak)

Quercus infectoria (Alleppo oak, gall oak) originates from the eastern Mediterranean region and western Asia. The tree only grows about 6 meters high, often (lower). It is very soil-tolerant, but can have major problems with frost (especially when young).

Quercus infectoria is famous for the presence of so-called “gall apples” on the undersides of its leaves. These gall apples are produced by gall wasps and are enriched with tannins. They are used medicinally as antioxidants and for their antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects.
