English term or phrase: PAN GUNIANG
Sorry for bothering you.
This is not my language combination but I am translating a scientific paper from English into Italian about agriculture in China and I have come across a list of plant names.
I was told that "pan guniang" means "fat girl" but I just cannot figure out the correct botanical name (or the common English name, if any) that could help me with the Italian translation.
Thanks a lot for you help.
