This small tree was photographed in my native place in Karanprayag, Chamoli (Uttarakhand). It is a planted species here. Fruits are sour and eaten.
Based on Flora of India vol-4 by BSI it appears as Clausena lansium (Lour.) Skeels.
Please suggest the correct ID.
I think the id is correct
This is Clausena lansium (Lour.) Skeels
Thank you … for the validation. My ID was also based on your work in Flora of India which says that star shaped buds are characteristic to this species.
