A Berry That Grows in Guntur ...


... and everywhere else that curry leaf does, I'm sure!

These are the fruit of the curry leaf plant, the answer to the guessing game in the previous post.

This came off the bunches of curry leaf I bought a couple of weeks ago, and it was quite a discovery because I don't even remember these fruit despite having had curry leaf growing in our backyard at home when I was a kid. There was a faint memory of red fruit on the tree and Google Images confirmed it, but the green seems very new to me, guess I only caught a glimpse of them when they were ripe.

Two people, Haritha and Kalyani, got this right. Haritha linked to her blog, Kalyani did not. So I will link to Haritha for the next five posts, including this one. Haritha, you'd better start posting! :-D

And a link to Rachel, because it was her comment that gave me the title for this post!

    Meant the caption :-D
    "A Berry grows in Guntur" like "A Tree grows in Brooklyn"

    See, no "that" ;-)

  5. Joanne, if I'd seen them strew somewhere, I'd have suspected they'd be poisonous.
    Bong Mom, I thought so, but then I got worried that I'd made a mistake with the grammar somewhere! Phew!

  11. We had loads of berries in our curry leaves tree at home. They will get to grow into black fruits that will be slightly sweet. Long many years since I have seen them though...the tree has to be quite grown to bear berries.

  13. Since I've never seen curry leaves outside of a collection of them in a tidy, plastic bag at the Indian grocer, I never would have guessed this. Do they have a fragrance at this point, or need to mature into leaves?
