Wow, now I know of a third Carissa, discovering a whole new world...
THANKS Neil ji....
I only knew about two: Carissa macrocarpa and C. carandas... now
this...

googling for c. congesta I found a bewildering list of synonyms for
Carissa cogesta...

I was wondering why so much confusion, why did taxonomist/ botanists/
fruit specialist felt the need to identify the same bush and its
berries with so many names... and I discovered its not listed as
Carissa congesta , but as Carissa spinarum. and this URL wiki page
lists congesta as a synonym...
go figure!!!
Again , thanks, Dr. Soares....

Fourth not third. Carissa spinarum was uploaded recently from Morni hills.

Dear Dr. Singh: OK FOURTH....
But did you get to peruse the wiki link I sent?
it says spinarum and congesta are synonums...
I am confused...
what I need from you, so that I will learn,  to read the wiki essay and give us your opinion...
will be very useful....

Thank you.... I think this is like going to a university , love it....
Usha di.
