Querasfum is what {the previously mentioned} Stephanus writes for Arabic kersf, which is in Latin apium {"celery"} and the same also writes querasferum in some places.


Wehr (1976): ﻛﺮﻓﺱ /karafs/ "celery (Apium graveolens L.; bot.)".

'Ou, qu' is to be pronounced /k/, i.e. /kerasf(er)um/. Cf. Q littera.
