Have you ever found yourself wondering about something that's so utterly random, you think to yourself, "How the hell did I get here?" Well, if you have, you're in the right place.

Bearing the timeless eight-pointed cross that's become so synonymous with Maltese history and culture, the persimmon was introduced to the world by Nikolai Cutajar.

And the name he gave it?

Frotta Patrijotta.

We don't know about you, but we're hard-pressed trying to find a fruit that's as patriotic as a fruit that has an actual eight-pointed-cross in its very core. That's pretty much on par with a chest tattoo.
