Attached are pictures of Terminalia catappa growing by the roadside in Mumbai in September 2012.
We as children used to collect the fruits fallen on the ground early morning and eat them just so that we could eat the seeds inside the tough kernel.
Very true … One of my favorite fruits.
Are the seeds edible?
Yes, … We used to eat them thinking that they were really ‘बदाम’, for us children, they were thinner बदामs

Requesting to please ID this big tree growing in a cultivated garden in Goa in May 2015.
Leaves looked like Terminalia catappa but were much larger. Also the branching pattern looked different.
Is this Terminalia catappa only?
This is the Badam or Indian/ Bengal Almond tree [Terminalia catappa]. It is a native of the Moluccas and the Andaman Islands and is often cultivated in gardens.
