ELAEOCARPUS SERRATUS: Elaeocarpus serratus is known as Jalpai in Bangla. The drupes of the tree are edible. These are pickled or eaten in curries. In our childhood we knew this fruit to be olive ( even now I find this misconception prevails in Bengal). In fact the tree is a cousin of Elaeocarpus shaericus ( RUDRAKSHA ). Attaching three images og this plant.

Bangalore - RA - Elaeocarpus variabilis - South Indian Marble Tree (Please Confirm):


Flowering Season was October.
Nice set of pics. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Any idea, why it is called Marble Tree?
Perhaps by analogy with Australian "Blue marble Tree" , the cobalt shiny marble - sized fruits of E.angustifolius look like blue marbles.
  
I think almost sure it is Elaeocarpus serratus

Id this tree and fruit please : 9 posts by 6 authors. Attachments (1)
The fruits were excellent and the CRPF camp in which this tree stood were busy making pickle of this fruit.
I think this is the fruit in malayalam known as Karacka

It looks like Ambada [Spondias acuminata]. Sending you a photograph of one of my saplings.
Hi, for me it looks like a species of Elaeocarpus. Spondias has pinnate leaves, isn't it?
Did consider Elaeocarpus, but are the fruit used for making pickle?
..., my colleague ... says fruits of Elaeocarpus oblongus (= E. tectorius; E. glandulosus) are used for making pickle in Madurai region in TN. 
It is Elaeocarpus (orange coloured ripen leaves (one in the photo) are very good identifying feature in field for this genus) may be "serratus' or "oblongus". leaf length and shapes are the main feature for identifying these species. Karaka in kerala is mostly E. serratus. But we should not go with common name.
Thanks. Will do some search and find out. By the way what is the common English name of the tree?
I too agree with ... This may be Elaeocarpus oblongus .. but for first time 'm hearing that the fruits of this are pickled....

 
Location: Botanical Garden of FRI, Dehradun, Sept 2014
mimusops sp
but which exactly i dont know
that is certainly not Mimusops !
why not? where does it belong?
they are in two distinct families..Elaeocarpaceae and Sapotaceae. You must have confused the flowers as they are both white but other than that, they are very different. 
For Elaeocarpaceae
Perianth with distinct calyx and corolla, or sepaline (corolla often missing); 4–5, or 8–10; 1 whorled, or 2 whorled; isomerous. Calyx 4, or 5; 1 whorled; polysepalous, or gamosepalous; regular; usually valvate. Epicalyx absent. Corolla when present, 4, or 5; 1 whorled; polypetalous (usually), or gamopetalous (rarely); valvate (or valvate-induplicate, never contorted); regular. Petals often fringed.
For Sapotaceae
Perianth with distinct calyx and corolla; 6–16(–20); 2 whorled, or 3 whorled; isomerous. Calyx 4, or 5, or 6, or 8; 1 whorled (then 5), or 2 whorled (then 2+2, 3+3 or 4+4); polysepalous; when one whorled, imbricate. Corolla 3–6, or 8, or 10; 1 whorled, or 2 whorled (and sometimes ostensibly 2-whorled, through the lobes of the single whorl bearing dorsal appendages like themselves); appendiculate (with dorsal appendages on the lobes), or not appendiculate; gamopetalous; imbricate.
thanks
it was not the flower but the leaf that reminded me of mimusops...
flower "petals and the inflorescence looked very different" too..
and thanks for the key of Elaeocarpaceae..
how about one for the mimusops???
Here is a photo of Mimusops elengi flower for reference - https://www.flickr.com/photos/arun_delonix/14381267335
Very welcome ...! , the key for Sapotaceae is also there.
To me it seems to be Elaeocarpus shaericus (RUDRAKSHA). If the image is from a tree behind the main FRI building, the tree was planted by Mrs Indira Gandhi.
Can be Elaeocarpus serratus.
It can't be Elaeocarpus serratus. This species does not grow in Dehradun.
efi page on Elaeocarpus sphaericus    
To me it appears to be Elaeocarpus serratus L. as per comparative images in efi.

This could be Elaeocarpus serratus L. of Elaeocarpacae family.
Yes Elaeocarpus species. I have seen flower similar to this but of different colour also in Karnataka.
Please refer the following link.
http://www.biotik.org/india/species/e/elaeserr/elaeserr_en.html
Leaf descriptions -shape- shape, size, venation & margin agree with the Biotik link, Bark patterns, color and texture too.
My flower pictures are`nt good enough to depict the finer aspects.
Earlier I could eliminate the Elaeocarpus flora kinds mentioned in flowers of India.
