My picture taken on April 9, Great shot I think I have not seen the red colour that bright in whatever flowers I have seen here in Western ghats. It is the Kumbhi of Sanskrit writers, and appear to have been so named on account of the hollow on the top of the fruit giving it somewhat the appearance of a water-pot. Wild pigs are very fond of the bark, and that it is used by hunters to attract them.
An astringent gum exudes from the fruit and stem, and the bark is made into coarse cordage. Bark surface flaking in thin strips, fissured, dark grey; crown spreading. Leaves arranged spirally, often clustered at the apices of twigs, simple, broadly obovate, tapering at base, margin toothed, stipules small, caducous. Flowers in an erect raceme at the end of branches. Flowers are large, white. Sepals are 4, petals 4, free. Stamens are many, connate at base; disk annular; ovary inferior, locular with many ovules in 2 rows per cell, style 1.
Fruit a large, many-seeded drupe, globose to depressed globose, crowned by the persistent sepals. Seedling with hypogeal germination; cotyledons absent seed containing a swollen hypocotyl ; shoot with scales at the first few nodes.
