to rashida atthar,
You are right Rashida ji
Presently it is fruiting even in Pune city.
The flowers are often inconspicuous and white in colour. I think I have posted them in some other thread.
The important thing about this tree is that it is evergreen and not deciduous(If I am not wrong) so throughout the year beautiful green canopy is observed and it is a very good native avenue tree for plantation in city.
