A rather strange tree, which does better than others in dry climate but the largest fruits I had seen was on trees growing on almost marshy ground in Kashmir.

Absolutely Dr. Gurcharan Singh ji, It is a fruit that grows best in
drier areas. My late father was a person who planted every kind of
fruit tree here. Pomegranate is a bit of a failure here in the sense,
though we get the fruits, it ripens during the monsoon and is not so
good, they do turn red and are sweet, but very small and they crack up
when mature, sometimes even before they ripen. Regards.

Dear Yazdy ji, beautiful flower.  Yes, it grows well in drier areas where the rainfall is less.   It does well in soil with good drainage.  The flowers are very beautiful and in Mumbai I have seen fisherwomen with their hair decorated with this flower.

Thanks for sharing,

Regards,

Mani.
