Sir,

I was looking for Coccinia grandis this morning and chanced upon this plant, a climber bearing red round fruit which is a bit bigger than a pingpong ball. After some searching in the net, just a while ago, i found that it can be "Trichosanthes quinuangulata" as have been displayed in the following websites :-


Is it Trichosanthes quinuangulata or some other species?

Thank you & Regards,

Surajit Koley

Thank you Sir. It's new to me too because all these days, since 2009, i was drawn more to fauna than to flora. More so because i do have zero knowledge on plant kingdom.

Regards,

Surajit Koley
