The lesser known Summer fruit – The Neem Fruit
There are several summer fruits. But my special fruit, besides mango, is neem fruit.
Heard of? Had it? No?
Those who live in villages, are connected with village culture, can understand what I am trying to convey.
Ripen Neem fruit. Amazing taste. Sour, sweet and bitter. From outer pulp to the seed surface, gradually, respectively. Perfect to re-sensitize taste sense.
“नैम्बफ़लं रसे तित्त्क्ं पाके तु कटु भेदनम् ||
स्निग्धं लघु उष्णं कुष्ठघ्नं गुल्मार्श कृमिमेहनुत |”

As per guidance I received, eat it empty stomach in the morning. Before monsoon arrives! 🙂
Go, check! They are in abundant! 🙂
