Yes sir, the difference was clear yesterday itself by Dinesh ji's pictures. Thanks Raghu ji for the nice pictures of this plant. One observation the ripe fruit does not have the white marks that I have seen on the fruits in Mumbai forest,  or maybe the marks go away after they are totally ripe.

regards,
Rashida.

... true, Rashida ji, ... have seen most often, the variegated design on the raw fruit (of M. maderaspatana) disappears as it ripens.
