Dear Friends,
Came across this Shrub near Patharpunj (Chandoli region).

Could this be Tabernaemontana alternifolia??

Thanks & best wishes
Prashant

Prashantji,
I have seen fruits of nag kuda when i visited Matheran in June 2009. Attached pics of follicles.
i had visited Mahavir sanctuary, Goa in the last week of jan 2010. one can see from the pics that the fruit formation has just started.
Cheers,
Shubhada

Prashant Ji,
Tabernaemontana alternifolia grows well in Delhi, but I have never seen its fruit.
