Wild shrub growing in roadside area

very nice to see the flowers…
Its called chanibor..ચણીબોર in Gujarati.
a small dark red ber…
I remember this was our favorite to eat as my dad took us trekking along the country roads to introduce us to our native state… we used pick them right off the tree, and in those days.. there was not the black soot along country roads that I saw in 2002… so back then we could eat them right off the tree..now one has to wash them well
….you can enjoy these for next few months.. I believe they ripen in December at least in Gujarat …

We eat this with addition of little black salt


Chaniya maniya in Marathi. Seen outside all schools.

Zizyphus mauritiana Lam. ?? : 12 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (6)
Sharing some pictures I guess is Zizyphus mauritiana Lam. shot at Chitwan National Park, Nepal on 13 January 2013 at 600 ft.

Nepali Names: बयर Bayar / ठुलो बयर Thulo Bayar


Thanks, …, for the nice images and tempting fruits.


I think you are right.


For me the ID is correct.


Looks Ziziphus numuleria.


In North India it is known as Jharberi.


I think … is right. I will go with Ziziphus nummularia


For me the ID is doubtful. I still believe it could be Z. mauritiana only.  Compare again the characters in detail.


The best person to judge is …, who can compare the vegetative & floral characters and decide the species.


HaHa! I am not a Dr. just a commoner !

Could the learned members of the group establish the identity/sub-species of these `ber’ growing wild in the Shiwaliks, lying to the north-west of Chandigarh.
Photo taken on 25.11.2014. The plant bore many thorns, and the colour of the fruit was yellow, brown or even maroon.

Does this fruit bear any food value for humans?


Can be Zizyphus species.


I think Ziziphus mauritiana


However, these fruits are very small when ripe and grow wild.
Z. mauritiana is the cultivated `ber’ and is of a large size.

Or is the wild `ber’ also Z. mauritiana?


Could this actually be Ziziphus nummularia?

Thanks, … I think you are right- Ziziphus nummularia


Could u please furnish some info on its specific character, some interesting, unknown facts?


Ber is widely cultivated in commercial scale, several cultivated as well as wild species and strains are available. The fruits are edible, used to make some food preparations also. Exclusive research stations are available in India and Pakistan. Now it is ber season, tons of hybrid fruits (considered to be poor man’s Apple) coming to the Chennai and Bangalore market.


I think the identity of this species has been finally settled. On the asking of Prof SP Khullar, former, HoD, Botany dept, Panjab Univ, Chandigarh, I supplied him with some cuttings of the zizyphus from the Shiwaliks near Chandigarh. They bore fruit, which was yellow, brown and maroon, ie, in various stages of ripening. Maroon was the final stage just before turning dry.

Prof Khullar, on examination of the samples, especially the leaves, confirmed it as Zizyphus nummularia.


Zizyphus nummularia is most frequently growing shrub in Sub-tropical zones bearing globose/ rounded fruits which turn brownish maroon on maturity.


Yes, matches exactly the shrub that I have in mind.

Gujarati name(s) of Ziziphus nummularia : 3 posts by 2 authors.

While popular name for Ziziphus nummularia is ચણીબોર chanibor OR ચણિયાંબોર chaniyabor, there is another name abdaubordi (***બોરડી) mentioned in Biological Diversity of Gujarat [PDF]. Please help me with the name in native script.


This plant is also known as અડબાઉ બોરડી in Gujarati. The epithet અડબાઉ is used for several plants that grow wild or tend to self-sow easily. I’m getting an error while trying to access the PDF linked in your email; the English transliteration of અડબાઉ is incorrect from what you have quoted. Other Gujarati names of this species are ખેતરાઉ બોરડી and પાલેરાં.

Thank you very very much … for the names, clarity and information.

zizuphus jujuba or ziziphus mauritiana : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)

These two fruits was purchased from Mumbai market. Dried BER fruits. one is globular with large sized globular nut where the fleshy portion is thin. Whereas another is elongated and somewhat cyindrical with smaller nut which are elongated with sharp ends both ends. elongated fruit said as imported from Pakistan and another said as local or desi. The doubt is which is Zizuphus jujuba and whcih is Ziziphus mauritiana. Local floras mention both as synonyms. If so, please identify the elongated fruits with smaller nuts with sharp ends.


One is globular with large sized globular nut where the fleshy portion is thin-> I think is Ziziphus nummularia as per images & details herein.

Ziziphus mauritiana is different.

Ziziphus for ID : Delhi : 090113 : AK-1:  These shrubs were seen at Garden of Five Senses in Delhi on 6th Dec, 2012 during a visit.

Shrubs, growing in many places, laden with fruits.

Berries small in size.


This looks like the common Bor / Bora tree [Ziziphus mauritiana].


I feel it may be Ziziphus nummularia, being a shrub.


I think Ziziphus nummularia.


is this chanibor of saurashtra?
