Bor

Bor, Indian jujube, Chinese apple, or Indian palm are small green fruits that grow on thorny evergreen shrubs. These shrubs can grow up to 15m in height, with stipular spines and drooping branches. The origin of this tree is traced back to the Indo-Malaysian region of Southeast Asia but is now grown in various tropical regions like the Middle East and Southern Africa. The fruits can be eaten raw and range from sweet to sour. It is also pickled in many parts of India
