- n. Alternative form of myrobalan.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
[311-2] The myrobolan is an East Indian fruit with a stone, of the prune genus.
We have also seen some lemon-colored myrobolans; at this season they are all lying under the trees, and have a bitter flavor, arising, I think, from the rottenness occasioned by the moisture of the ground; but the taste of such parts as have remained sound, is that of the genuine myrobolan. [
