Diospyros quaesita is a flowering tree of the Ebenaceae family. This Sri Lankan tree is valued highly for its dark-colored calamander timber which is durable. It is rare now because demand for the wood has increased, and it has a slow growth and irregular flowering period.

The leaves are 3 1/4 to 7 inches long. Their flowers are yellow or white. The fruit that they produce is a spherical berry.
