Irumban Puli

Some more pictures of the flora around. I don't know what the botanical name of this plant is. The fruits are fairly small and are green even when ripe and are very sour--called irumban puli here. The flowers are really small. Does this tree grow anywhere in North India I wonder.

Not the foggiest re: Northern India, but I can tell you they don't grow here!

You haven't muscadines, though, I don't think, do you?

muscadines are a type of grape? If so I think they do:)

The rains are still part of life right now but interspersed with sunshine - as long as theres o waterlogging we're fine. Your blog 's looking great and your you tube upload was very refreshing and sybaritic.

Muscadines are a wild, north American grape. Then, here in North Carolina, we have our own type - scuppernongs, which are, bar none, the best grapes, wild or cultivated, in the universe.

well we have some type of grapes here, though they don't grow here in our state.
