Hello all
This extensive climber was observed in the forest areas of Borkhed,
Buldhana in December 08
the weak purplish stem is covered with soft prickles. the fruit and
seeds point out towards Ipomoea species.
i was not able to observe the flowers as the flowering season was already over.

please help in Id.

regards
Satish Pardeshi

Dear Satish,
 
This looks like Ipomoea muricata.
 
This species (with handsome blue flowers that used to open by 6 am and fade early by 10 am) was dominating the annual weed flora of bangalore in 2007, replacing the previous year's Chromolaena odorata. The year 2008 saw a robust growth of Datura species (D. ferox, D. metel). Now the same habitats are covered with a lush growth of Cassia tora and Cassia uniflora.

Dear all,
 
'Ipomoea muricata' is called 'Bhingari' 'भिंगरी' / Barik Bhovari' 'बारीक भोवरी' in Marathi.

Dear Satish,


This looks like *Ipomoea muricata*.


This species (with handsome blue flowers that used to open by 6 am and
fade
early by 10 am) was dominating the annual weed flora of bangalore in
2007,

replacing the previous year's *Chromolaena odorata*. The year 2008 saw
a
robust growth of *Datura* species (*D. ferox, D. metel*). Now the
same

It is Ipomoea muricata. young fruits are edible. it is called in
Malayalam as Nithya vazhuthina. Instead of brinjal it can be used in
preparation of sambar
