Prickly Pear

Recently I had been to Bengaluru for a quick family trip. We managed (;) to make time to visit Cubbon Park spread over 300 acres with more than 6000 trees. And stunning gorgeous ones too. Don’t worry you too shall feast your eyes upon them by and by. The first of them is here but today for Becca’s Sunday Trees I have a tree from elsewhere in Bengaluru. It fruits (budding blossoms?) looked like what I imagine prickly pear would. But I couldn’t find out which tree it was – perhaps you can identify it for me?

No idea

  1. I have no idea what the tree is.Not a prickly pear. It does not look like rambutan tree to me though the flowers(fruits) do look like unripe rambutan. Delicious fruit ate a lot in East Africa ( came from Zanzibar). I will try to find out and let you know.
