The Wonder fruit

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 5 November 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The Vilva Tree....Aegle marmelos or Bael or Vilvum as it is called. The leaves which have high medicinal values are special for Lord Siva. Other parts of the Tree are also used for preparing Ayurvedic medicines.

Fruit is a wonderful thing. We are told to eat an apple a day unless you want to look like an apple. I like apples and I eat more in the day, but I still think someone seems apple, that is, round and red.

It certainly has a lot of fruit. It reminds me of an apple tree. A very healthy looking tree.
