Location: Sandakphu, India

Altitude: 10 – 11000 ft.
Habit : Wild
it also shows problems in wild for the plant
I was wondering about its fruits?
There are some young emerging fruits in the last image.
if you are in a geographic area where a followup visit is possible, would love to see fully grown fuits/berries.
otherwise no pressure.
It is too far for me. Not sure if I could make it again. By the way it is closed from 15 June to 15 September during fruiting
