EUPHORBIACEAE WEEK :: Phyllanthus emblica: Though the EUPHORBIACEAE WEEK is over I couldn’t resist posting the good specimen of flowers which I observed yesterday in Smruti Udyan Pune.


– If the pictures are so good, keep them coming .., thanks. These are also complementary to the wonderful ones uploaded by Dr. .. last week.  Here the fimbriate bracts at the base of flowers are clearly seen and
the distichous sub-sessile leaves.  The bark peels off in conchoidal flakes !
(Can someone Please explain what exactly is the meaning of conchoidal ?).

   Amlas are great to have in the field, dried, salted and sweetend ones.!! Family now  is  Phyllanthaceae : Phyllanthus emblica L.


– con·choi·dal: Denoting a type of fracture in a solid (such as flint or quartz) that results in a smooth rounded surface resembling the shape of a scallop shell. ..

   Did you checked with Phyllanthus indofischeri Bennet? It differs in size of leaf and no. of pairs in a rachis and fruit (wild) size.


– Brandis has mentioned for this plant -pg 570 : as ” bark greenish -gray, peeling off in conchoid scales, wood red, hard, med. rays broad, conspicuous on a vertical  section“.   So the natural fracturing in the wood, bark would lead some sort of scales looking like scallop shell?!!

What a lot of fruits on one short group of branches.. imagine how many would a tree bear?
I have seen a few only per foot of a branch in a demonstration garden for herbal medicine…

/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Indian%20Gooseberry%20Tree%20-%20Leaf.jpg

Fruit Trees of Bangalore – RA – Phyllanthus Emblica – Indian Gooseberry Tree – Amla: Amla is a small to medium sized deciduous tree, reaching 8 to 18 m in height, which is known for its edible fruit of the same name. The tree has crooked trunk and spreading branches.

The leaves are simple, nearly stalkless and closely set along slender branchlets. The leaves are often mistaken for leaflets of pinnate leaves.
The genus name Phyllanthus is derived from Greek words meaning leaf-flower, an allusion to the apparent bearing of flowers on the leaves.
Amla flowers are small, greenish-yellow or pinkish. The flowers have six segments, but no real petals. Male and female flowers are carried separately on the same branch. 
The fruit is nearly spherical, light greenish yellow, quite smooth and hard on appearance, with 6 vertical stripes or furrows. Ripening in autumn, the berries are harvested by hand after climbing to upper branches bearing the fruits.
The taste of Amla is sour, bitter and astringent, and is quite fibrous. In India, it is common to eat gooseberries with salt and water to make the sour fruits palatable.
Ref. Phyllanthus emblica – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gorgeous……. Excellent shots. These fruits are best source of Vitamin C


Truely I haven’t seen such clear pics of the flowers before (or better to admit I haven’t seen flowers so closely). Special thanks, I will now also try to locate the flowers and shoot them.


Wow, this is Nellikka, my favorite.

Phyllanthus emblica L. is a cultivated fruit in Pantnagar. Several varieties of it are planted here. Wild plants exist in adjacent forests and in hills but the fruits are smaller in those.

I was working on the plants mentioned by poet Tagore in his songs, for last one and half years. It is interesting to note that poet has mentioned some 83 plants in his songs. Top 5 are as under,

1. BAKUL – 69
2. SHIULI – 38
3. MALATI- 34
4. CHNAPA- 29
5. KADAM -27
I have uploaded some 513 songs (some are repetition, as different plants are mentioned in the same song ) for my friends who can read and understand Bangla. With the guidance of my young friend Prof. Sankalpa Ghosh (IIT, Delhi) I am in the process of incorporating the English translation of the songs where plants are mentioned. Attaching an image of AMLAKI (Emblica officinalis/ AMLA/ INDIAN GOOSEBERRY) with translation of a song printed on it.

AMLA (Indian Gooseberry) Female flower
Botanical Name: Phyllanthus emblica
Place: Dr. P.N. Mehra Botanical Garden, Panjab University, Chandigarh on 3rd April 2018
Based on information available on WebMD (https://www.webmd.com/
…/ingredientmono-784-indian%20goosebe… ), Amla has following health benefits:
1. High cholesterol. Some early research shows that taking Indian gooseberry for 4 weeks decreases low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol in people with high cholesterol. Other early research shows that taking Indian gooseberry extract for 12 weeks decreases LDL cholesterol in obese people.
2. Osteoarthritis. Research shows that taking two capsules of an Ayurvedic formula containing Indian gooseberry and several other ingredients three times daily for 24 weeks is as beneficial as taking glucosamine sulfate or the drug celecoxib for reducing pain in people with knee osteoarthritis.
3. Skin disorder that causes unpigmented skin (vitiligo). Early research suggests that taking one tablet containing Indian gooseberry and other ingredients three times daily for 6 months along with standard treatment can increase skin repigmentation and reduce signs of inflammation better than standard treatment alone.
4. Bloody diarrhea (dysentery).
5. Cancer.
6. Diabetes.
7. Diarrhea.
8. Eye problems.
9. Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis).
10. Indigestion.
11. Joint pain.
12. Obesity.
13. Swelling of the pancreas.
