Can you please give me some information regarding the altitude of the place, temperature, Humidity, and other such conditions Fruiting time from Sapling in Manilkara Hexandra. I remember my childhood. During summer vacation all of us children go to our village to be with our grand pa.

There was a large Khirni tree. During our stay May-June we used to get of khirni plucked known as Jhar karna and eat the ripe -sweet and sticky fruits. I have got reference only on flowering. Flowering of M. I assume the fruiting would be around January-April. I guess i needed to have reframed the question slightly. How long years? I had a natural bonsai last year that had fruits by second year after grafting We have noticed a few Manilkara trees near our locality that been told to have not gone beyond 4 feet in 10 years so we were wondering if it is really that kind of a slow grower.

It is around 10 feet now. It survived a huge tin shed falling on it 5 years ago. Will try to share an image today. This looks like Manilkara hexandra locally called Rayan or Khirni. Somehow it doesn't look like any species of Calophyllum to me. Not sure of the id.

My thoughts that lead a conclusion why this not Calophyllum are that the venation in Calophyllum are always numerous and very tightly arranged and are generally not much visible in photographs.

We can feel the veins by touching the leaf. Second thing, bark of Calophyllum is always fissured A long narrow opening; a crack or cleft whereas, here the bark looks smooth. When you cut the bark it would be very fibrous, thick and there are coloured or colourless gummy exudates. This is not clear from picture I a giving one more clue to check if you happen to see the plant again. Bark - Dark grey to Black, rough, furrowed Does not Match, its light brown Leaves - cm, shiny, stiff and leathery, rounded and often notched at the apex, dark green, paler beneath Matches Did not cut the bark, so no idea whether its a gummy exudate Calophyllum or milky exudate Manilkara Flowers and fruits not present.
