We have established two datasets containing 20 types of Chinese herbal medicine fruits intended for the automatic recognition research of herbal medicines. The first dataset (Dataset 1) was obtained through Google search and contains 3,384 images. The second dataset (Dataset 2) was obtained from photographs of Chinese herbal medicine taken with a smartphone in a traditional Chinese medicine pharmacy, comprising 400 images. In Dataset 1 and Dataset 2, each type of Chinese medicine herb is stored in a separate folder, with the folder named after its name. The 20 classes of images are (1) Psoralea Corylifolia, (2) Alpinia Katsumadai Hayata, (3) Toosendan Fructus, (4) Kochiae Fructus, (5) Amomi Fructus Rotundus, (6) Rubi Fructus, (7) Lycii Fructus, (8) Trichosanhes Kirilowii, (9) Rosae Laevigatae Frucyus, (10) Semen Armeniacae Amarum, (11) Forsythiae Fructus, (12) Chaenomelis Fructus, (13) Amomi Fructus, (14) Crataegi Fructus, (15) Cornifructus, (16) Persicae Semen, (17) Mume Fructus, (18) Schisandrae Chinensis Fructus, (19) Foeniculi Fructus, (20) Gardeniae Fructus. The two datasets form a Ningbo Traditional Chinese Medicine Chinese Herb Medicine (NB - TCM - CHM) Dataset.
