Vof Week: 13092012 BS-4 Large fruit tree for id:

Pls id this large size fruit tree
Fruit edible i think


Looks interesting. Size of fruit please??


About 3-3.5 cm


Thanks for posting … I am also eager to know the id….I suspect this to be an edible fruit..


I had two in mind, Pyrus pashia and Cydonia oblong, but the leaves don’t match either.


Sir this is not Pyrus pashia I am sure, and even the fruits do not agree with Cydonia oblonga due to smaller size, lets wait further….at first both me and … mistook this to be a Ficus, but only after dissecting the fruit we changed our view….


I think … have resolved its identity, this is Sorbus cuspidata


I think before we conclude we have to exclude the possibility of Sorbus lanata. When … first uploaded this plant he wrote fruit size as 3-3.5 cm on my asking. S. cuspidata has fruit not larger than 2 cm, where as in S. lanata it can be up to 4 cm. More over mature fruit in S. cuspidata is dark red, Could not find information about S. lanata


This is locally called ‘Napal, a wild form of apple. Scientific name is Sorbus cuspidata. Another similar plant is Sorbus lanata. Earlier, these were named under Pyrus
