Thanks, Santhosh ji,
Can't say. I didn't try.
I am attaching pictures identified earlier as Z. oenoplea, in the thread below:
I relied on Pardesi ji's earlier feedback in another thread (http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/a7a7f2e0d77facb6/ebe141fa936fb565?hl=en&lnk=gst&q=Z.+oenoplea#ebe141fa936fb565):
"Z. oenoplea:
the twig and the lower surface of leaves are tomentose with golden
silky hairs. upper surface is shining glossy. fruit are ripeing black,
about 0.6-0.8 cm across; rind soft. styles 2.
 
Zizyphus caracatta Buch-Ham. ex Rox:
leaves glabrous above, glabrescent beneath, trinerved;deep green,
ripening black, rugose, 1.5 cm in diameter, rind hard, stony. styles
3-fid.

Yes this is Zizipus oenoplia. The fruits are edible, although the fruit's mesocarp is very thin it tastes better.
