About this book

Language: English

The fruit is an essential part of most trees. The mention of the word "fruit" suggests its edible nature. However, all fruits are not edible. Some of them may even be poisonous. It is worth noting that merely touching some of the fruits may trigger allergic reaction as they exude some fluid. In this book the fruiting trees of Delhi, both native and brought from outside Delhi are mentioned.

Trees play an important role in purifying the atmosphere by gas exchange. Many interesting facts have been mentioned in the book. Golden Cane Palm transpires nearly one litre of water in 24 hours, thereby making the atmosphere humid. This book will provide adequate information regarding the propagation of various trees. This will help the readers in maintaining and understanding their personal gardens, parks or their surroundings. Some mythological events connected with some of the trees have also been highlighted.

Ber tree fruits and its leaves are offered to Lord Shiva. The tree is sacred for the sikh community. The importance of Pipal and Bargad are well known to the Hindus.
