This is a climber from Rajnagar, Kumarghat, Tripura
Pl. check comparative images at
This may not be Annona but may be Moraceae
Please forward some more pictures(leaf and the fruit) to other members
Could be Poikilospermum suaveolens or Fissistigma verrucosum
Does not match with either of the two as per
Schisandra propinqua (Wall.) Baill. ??
It is Schisandra propinqua
May I request you to pl. have a relook.
You are right, they are very similar but based on the young fruits I would still say Kadsura
I guess you are right …
May be Kadsura heteroclita as per discussions at another thread: Re: Kadsura heteroclita or Schisandra propinqua?

The ripe fruits are sour sweet in taste. Each grape shape fruit contains single seed.
This is found in Rajnagar, Kumarghat, Unokoti, Tripura
I guess it is Kadsura !
We have already discussed about it at
I will go with Kadsura heteroclita as per discussions at

Kadsura longipedunculata in FOI : 2 posts by 2 authors.
I feel images of Thingnam ji at Kadsura longipedunculata in FOI, may be Kadusra heteroclita as per images and details herein.
I did not find any references of Kadsura longipedunculata being found in India on the net including Flora of China, POWO and Catalogue of life.
Thanks …, I had already given it considerable thought. It is true that there is no record of Kadsura longipedunculata in India yet. However, the long peduncles of our flowers do not agree with Kadsura heteroclita (see description at FOC), while they agree well with Kadsura longipedunculata. So I treat it as a new record for India.
