Dear Friends,
 
Plz ID this Diospyros...flowering in Rani Bagh, Mumbai. Found a ripe fruit fallen under the same tree, a bit eaten by the bird.......a person from Rani Bagh told me that the fruit can eaten, so I ate the pulp there n there and found it very tasty. I have attached the photo of the ripe fruit along with the 6 seeds which came out of it.
 
Thanks & regards,
 
Renee

Dear Renee: Yes its D. malabarica, called Gaab in bengali, is very
sweet, local monkeys eat it up before we can get it or the local
urchins, we have a couple of trees in the horticulture garden in
Kolkata. Ushadi

yes the fruits looks like D. malabarica; but I have doubt about the size of calyx and the leaves too.

Friends
I was there with Renee.Even first we thought it was D.malabarica but
it can't be for LOOK AT THE FLOWERS!...THEY LOOK LIKE MALE
FLOWERS...HOW CAN IT BEAR FRUITS? and that made us wonder what it
was....female flowers of D.malabarica are very different and male and
female occur on separate trees[it is monoecious tree].....MAY BE this
is an aberrant D.malabarica who is born as dioecious! ! !
We were told it is vilayati Gab..and probably D.ebenum but D.ebenum
fruits are not so big!
thanking you all in advance.Usha[TAW]

Dear Renee ji,

Could this unidentified Diospyros sp. be Diospyros blancoi  (Velvet Apple)?

Regards
