Very nice, Sandhya...
Surajit just come over to the Agri Horticulture garden in Alipore, there is at least one big one and a smaller one ... the big one is in edge of the parking lot ...
and a relatively younger one (even that is about 30 years old) on the north side of the office door where the cashiers sit...   you can even sample the fruit if the gardeners are removing them for cleaning purposes...

Good morning Usha Di

I will visit the Garden in Alipore on some holiday. I visited Shibpur Botanical Garden in December, 2010, but was sad that very few trees had ID tags on them.

A happy week ahead to you and all friends....
