May any one help me this woody scandent unarmed shrub found in the forests of Eastrenghats,
Now I didnot notice the flowers.
fruit is about 2-3cm in size. As it is high on a tree we are unable to pluck it.


… a wild wild guess: some species of Sarcostigma, perhaps Sarcostigma kleinii Wight & Arn.

Reference: sighting during excursion with … in Uttara Kannada (Anmod Ghat).

It is Ximenia americana of Olacaceae.
Fruits are edible, taste sour.


Thanks very much … for the correct ID … my guess was purely based on the lookalike fruit.!
I do have one picture of fruits of Ximenia americana … http://www.flickr.com/photos/91314344@N00/5780500349/in/photolist-9NNzn8-9BQ7Jn


Thanks … for fixing the thread and for validating the id as well.

Its local Tamil name (in Tiruvannamalai dt.) is “Samara” சமரா.
