The fruit of the tree resembles a cannon ball in size but is actually brown and foul-smelling when ripe. The flower, in contrast, is just beautiful and very fragrant. A few snaps of the flower. Known in India as Nagalinga - naga for serpent and linga for the idol of Shiva on a pedestal - the flower looks like a thousand serpents around Lord Shiva.

The flower is so delicate that the petals and stigma separate from the flower at the slightest touch.

Wow! Looks like a sea anemone. Very beautiful.

Favorites are #3 and 4

Question: Why didn't you photograph them on the plant? It would have made a more interesting set of pictures. JM2C

Yes, Hiroshi. I would have liked that too, but I did not have the camera with me when I was at a place where the tree is. With the owners' permission, I took a few flowers home and then photographed them. The tree is a huge one, and you can see flowers blooming right from the root upwards, all through the trunk, but not in the branches. The fruits hang on the trunk only (like jackfruit). I will try to take a snap the next time I go there.

A very beautiful and interesting flower. I too would like to see a picture of the flowers on the tree.

I do not know when I will photograph the tree. However, here is a link that gives good images of the tree and the flowers and fruits.
