Since my childhood I came across and ate these fruits but was never able to locate or see the tree. We used to call it as ‘paisa’. Thanks for showing me the tree.

Adding my picture of wooden glass prepared from specially treated Beeja tree for Diabetes patients.


These wooden glasses once prepared, are used for many purposes along with Diabetes treatment. The Traditional Healers smear the mixture of herbs in form of paste in inner wall of this glass and then the youths interested in “Penis Enlargement” treatments are instructed to put the “member” inside the glass for different durations.
Beeja plays many amazing roles from young age to old age.

Name of the species: Pterocarpus marsupium
Place of collection:Ranpur, Nayagarh, Orissa
Altitude:230 m above msl
Habit: Tree
Habitat: Dry deciduous to moist deciduous forests


Thanks … For showing this fresh bright and healthy specimen with a lot of flowers in the inflorescence

Tree for ID Srisailam Andhra Pradesh NAW-OCT-02 : 7 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (4).

Kindly identify this forest tree growing in the Nallamalla Hills south of Srisailam.
Yellow flowers about 5-8 mm wide.

Photographed 2nd October, 2014. 


It looks like Centrolobium sp.,  probably C. paraense, family Leguminosae.  Please look for huge prickly winged fruits > 8 cm. 


Isn’t it Pterocarpus marsupium?


Yes, looks like Pterocarpus marsupium, would be nice to look at the winged seeds for additional confirmation.


I didn’t notice any fruit on the trees with flowers this time.

difference between two Pterocarpus species found in mysore : 5 correct images. 2 posts by 2 authors.

last week I posted few photos related to above subject but wrongly identification.
Pterocarpus maripium and Pterocarpus indicus are the two species. photos depict their differences, here it  


“”one” is P.santalinus. Key charecter is the axillary flowers.
“two” is P.marsupium. Key character is flowers (panicle) are terminal.
