Id of a fruit pl.

Location -Manas NP, Aasam

Date – March, 2014


Any other pictures, …


No, Sorry.


Phaleria macrocarpa


is it wild or farmed


it was wild and not farmed if i remember correctly as i had seen it two years back


i thought may be it was being cultivated and did the fruits look as if they might be this big?  with a line or furrow in the middle?


size was almost like very small tomatoes i suppose and i don’t remember about the furrows distinctly but a faint line. I googled about the medicinal properties and really there are many. I don’t know whether local people are aware about it or not.


This is a Meliaceae member. Either Dysoxylum or Aphanamixis. Any local name?


Appears close to images at Aphanamixis polystachya (Wall.) R.Parker


Yes … It can be Aphanamixis polystachya (रक्तरोहिडा in Marathi). I have seen this tree in Sagar Upvan, Mumbai.
