Hi,
Sending pictures of the flowers of S.guttata [locally
called Kukkar or Goldhar] to compliment Kiran's
picture of the fruit. They were taken in December 2007
in the Boravili National Park.
With regards,
Neil Soares.

Thanks for very nice photo of flowers Neil,

Unfortunately none of the flowers face us. There is a beautiful red star in the flower.

Isaac Kehimkar of the BNHS tells me that the edible seeds were being sold in Colaba Causeway, downtown Mumbai as jangli badams. I must try them out this Sunday.
