Its method of cultivation is the same as that of the lime (kagdi limbu). It yields fruit throughout the year. On an average, a tree bears thirty or forty fruits per year, depending on its age and condition. There are two varieties of the fruit, red and rose. The red variety is very popular and sweeter than the other one. The fruit is eaten along with sugar or salt and much relished.
