[efloraofindia:35842] Uvaria narum -climber : 8 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (2)

Uvaria narum, climber, fruiting at Ulvi WLS, Karnataka 28 April, ’10. Will be grateful of nomenclature update of this species, if any. Thank you

Great plant, Have a lots of medicinal properties such as anti-bacterial properties

Pleasee see the link shows new acetogenins from U narum

Fruits appear a bit different from those posted by … at efi thread.

The fruits are unripe to guess the sp but the plant may be U hookerii on account of fruits tapering at apex. U narum fruits are blunt at apex.

The ripe carpels are biseriate and up to 3 cm long in U. concava (= U. hookeri, U. lurida) whereas 1-seriate and up to 5 cm long in U. narum.  Thus, the former seems probable.
