new to me. any seeds?
I'll bring fruits and show you the  seed by Sunday.
Fruit is a one-seeded drupe. Seeds are very hard and can not be chewed along with fruits.  Some people swallow the seeds as well. Attachments (2)

(ayurveda : name is perhaps of this particular species: Kayaphal?)

This tree is not planted on commercial scale. Seeds are very hard like almonds.
