All pic. taken on 10/2/07 in Kolkata. Flower pic. already posted by Satish ji in a different mail a few days back. This is a common tree in Kolkata with its beautiful rounded look. Its ripe fruit is eaten by humans along with the birds etc. I have myself tasted one last year. Trees of Delhi says that it flowers in May- June; another flush in the rains. Flowering on 18/3/06 on roadside on way to Goa near Belgaon as per Satish ji. Here is a good link for it: http://www.holistic-herbalist.com/bakul.html
