Plant Description:
- This is a large fruited variety of the Bael.
- As plants are grafted they start bearing fruit quite early. Fruit stays on the plants for over six months and looks very ornamental as well.
The Bael is a native India, Burma, Himalayas. It is a small spiny tree, with slender branches, the foliage divided into 3 slender leaflets with crenate edges.
Flowers with 4 or 5 narrow petals and showing numerous stamens. Fruit is globular or pear shaped, 5 to 10 cm dia, and covered with smooth, hardy gray or yellow rind which contains orange, sweet aromatic pulp in 8-16 cells with seeds. The fruit pulp is used for drinks and conserves, the flowers are made into perfume in India. Its leaves are offered to lord Shiva.
- This plant is the symbol for hasta nakshatra.
Growing tips:
Easy to grow plant. Hardy and touch. Many people plant it near temples - and complain that the tree - just does not grow! This is because they over harvest the leaves. A simple solution is to let just one top branch grow. If this is done - the tree reaches to over three meters in a year or two. The leaves get beyond the reach of eager devotees and the plant grows well. There are many new hybrids available with high yield and sweeter pulp.
