Why Shankaracharya? Any relation to our Shankarachrya?
Tempting to eat. When can we come to Kashmir to pluck them, cheries, apples from tree directly? And in your company?


Yes there is a very famous temple at the top of the hill by this name. Older name is Takhat-e-Sulaiman.

Himachal is known for its many Rosaceae fruits like apples, pears, plums, peaches and almonds. There are also many wild relatives of these fruit species in the State. In this and the following mails, I’ll be uploading some of these wild fruit tree species.
It is Prunus armeniaca, the wild apricot, locally known as ‘Chulli’. This species is now widely cultivated for its fruit that happens to be amongst the first to appear in May during peak tourist season in the State, getting local people good income. Its seed oil is now in great demand for medicinal purposes.

Fruit tree seen in a home garden in Fremont, during my visit in Sept,14.

No flowers or fruits when picture was taken.


Maybe some Morus ?


Apricot tree suggested by the person in whose garden I had clicked the pictures.


Yes Prunus armeniaca is most likely
