Similar species - Elaeocarpus Decipiens (Japanese Blueberry). The seed of Rudraksh tree has been given a very special place and it is credited with mystical and divine properties. It is said that the plant of Rudraksh is originated from the tear drops of Lord Shiva. The word Rudraksh is a Sanskrit compound consisting of the name Rudra (the name of Lord Shiva) and Aksha which means eye, tear. As per the vedic scriptures Rudraksh can nullify the effects of malefic planets to a great extent. Before the seeds are dried, they are a deep rich blue, dried they become brown and are used as prayer beads. It is said that the seed of Rudraksh contains the secrets of entire evolution of the cosmos within it. No other necklace or bead is so auspicious and powerful as Rudraksh.

Elaeocarpus is a tall shrub or small tree which can reach 32-50ft in height but is usually much smaller in gardens. It is the most commonly grown member of the genus and is popular for its size, attractive flowers and colorful blue berries. It is adaptable to many climate zones provided water is available. It is not demanding as to soils but sands and waterlogged areas are not favored. Plants will grow in full sun to heavy shade. Small plants require regular watering, then as the plant matures in the ground, it becomes drought tolerant.

Close related species - Elaeocarpus angustifolius.

   2422 Elaeocarpus grandiflorus - Fairy Petticoats
Fairy Petticoats, Rudraksha. The masses of white to pinkish flowers with unusual liquorice scent are hanging downwards, like those of lily-of-the-valley, with cup-shaped feathery petals and fringed edge, recemble small hanging skirts, hence the attractive common name of Fairy Petticoats. The flowers are followed by shiny cobalt blue fruit with elegantly tuberculed stone. The stones are used in India as necklaces, stained or set in gold. They are particularly important in rosaries worn by Hindu mendicants, followers of Shiva, as they afford assistance to the attainment of Heaven and Shiva's company. Another name - Rudraksha tree - has been given a very special place and it is credited with mystical and divine properties. It is said that the seed contains the secrets of entire evolution of the cosmos within it (beads are generally used with Shiva mantra) and the plant is originated from the tear drops of Lord Shiva...

Muntingia calabura, Strawberry tree, Jam tree, Jamaican / Singapore / Panama cherry, Cotton Candy Berry, Calabura, Manzanil
 Muntingia calabura
Family: Elaeocarpaceae
Strawberry tree, Jam tree, Jamaican / Singapore / Panama cherry, Cotton Candy Berry, Calabura, Manzanil
Origin: Tropical America, Pacific islands
big treesmall tree 10-20 ftfull sunsemi-shademoderate waterwhite/off-white flowersedibleincuded in CD catalog

One of the most profuse fruiting trees! From spring to fall, you will harvest 2 crops a day once the plant is established , in full sun and has enough water. Drought tolerant, but needs regular watering to establish. This is a very fast-growing tree of slender proportions, reaching 25 to 40 ft (7.5-12 in) in height, with spreading, nearly horizontal branches. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, lanceolate or oblong, long-pointed at the apex, oblique at the base. The flowers with 5 green sepals and 5 white petals and many prominent yellow stamens last only one day, the petals falling in the afternoon. Flowers resemble strawberry bloom, hence the name of the tree. The abundant fruits are round, 3/8 to 1/2 in (1-1.25 cm) wide, with red or sometimes yellow, smooth, thin, tender skin and light-brown, soft, juicy pulp, with very sweet, musky, somewhat fig-like flavor, filled with exceedingly minute, yellowish seeds, too fine to be noticed in eating. Fruit taste like cotton candy. The fruits are sold in Mexican markets. In Brazil, they are considered too small to be of commercial value but it is recommended that the tree be planted on river banks so that the abundance of flowers and fruits falling into the water will serve as bait, attracting fish for the benefit of fishermen. In Malaya, the tree is considered a nuisance in the home garden because fruit-bats consume the fruits and then spend the day under the eaves of houses and disfigure the porch and terrace with their pink, seedy droppings. The Jamaica cherry is tropical to near-tropical. The tree has the reputation of thriving with no care in poor soils and it does well in both acid and alkaline locations, and even on old tin tailings in Malaya. It is drought-resistant but not salt-tolerant. Wherever it grows, fruits are borne nearly all year, though flowering and fruiting are interrupted in Florida and Sao Paulo, Brazil, during the 4 coolest months. Ripe fruits can easily be shaken from the branches and caught on cloth or plastic sheets. The Jamaica cherry is widely eaten by children out-of-hand, though it is somewhat sticky to handle. It is often cooked in tarts and made into jam. The leaf infusion is drunk as a tea-like beverage. The flowers are said to possess antiseptic properties. An infusion of the flowers is valued as an antispasmodic. It is taken to relieve headache and the first symptoms of a cold. Seeds spread by birds and fruit bats. Fruits contain hundreds of tiny seeds. Seeds germinate only with light.
