Fruit Trees of Bangalore – RA – Phyllanthus Acidus – Star Gooseberry Tree: Star Gooseberry is a small deciduous tree reaching about 25-30 ft in height.  

Leaves are compound, 14-25 inches long, crowded at the ends of the branches leaflets 2-3.5 inches long by 1-1.5 inches wide, alternately arranged along the rachis, ovate or obliquely ovate, acute or somewhat acuminate, base rounded or somewhat wedge-shaped.  
The genus name Phyllanthus is derived from Greek words meaning leaf-flower, an allusion to the apparent bearing of flowers on the leaves. The species name acidus is on account of the acidity of the fruit.  
Flowers are very minute, in short dense spike-like clusters arising from nodules along the branches, like mulberries.  
Fruit is pendulous, in small clusters from the branches, round or slightly flattened at the poles, with shallow or deep ribs (usually 5) 0.75 inch across. The tree usually flowers and produces fruit twice a year. Fruits appear simultaneously with the flowers. So, the tree usally has fruits hanging from it, at any time of the year.  
The fruit is used chiefly for pickling and for the preparation of preserves. It makes an excellent jam.  
Star Gooseberry is native of Malay Islands and Madagascar and frequently grown in India for its acid fruit.

Once this was a common tree in rural Hooghly.
Ripe fruits, though very sour, are favourite to kids.
We call it নোট্ ফল / নোড় ফল (NOTE PHAL / NORH PHAL) in Bengali.


Wow very good set of pictures. रायआवळा


Thank you Sir, it has two more Bengali names – LODH and HARIPHUL (Bengal Plants).
