Hi Aparna,

This is supposed to be at NCL Pune. The contact person is Mr. Murari
Jana. However I have not been able to see this plant so far, so can't
say about seeds. Regards, Shrikant

This tree is common as an invasive in Florida, USA.

If you cannot locate it locally, let me know. I'll see if I can procure some from contacts there.

Ken Greby.

Dear All
I posted a reply to same topic on ANOTHER group, so here copy-pasting
my reply

"The species is wild in Dun valley but becomes leaf less in Feb (upto
April or so). Flowering is in June-August and fruiting in Oct-Dec.
If possible remind again during the fruiting season so that I can
collect seeds."

Thanks and Regards
