There's a special tree in my home growing out from an old well. It's been here even before we settled here.

Every summer, this tree bears small yellow fruits. A lot of birds come here to eat this including the large Hornbill (വേഴാമ്പൽ). We're lucky to see so many birds in this special tree. Koel (കുയിൽ) like this tree the most. Every evening is a singing fest of them.

Nobody knows the name of this tree and we haven't seen this anywhere else. My new hobby is to reproduce this unique tree.

@subins2000 Looks like a fig family. Did you identify the tree? cc @sajith

@rajeesh @sajith I couldn't identify the tree. From another suggestion, I tried this app called "PlantSnap" which can identify trees based on pictures. I tried different leaves, fruits and the closest I could come to is "chionanthus ramiflorus", but that's not it.

@subins2000 @rajeesh കായും ഇലയും ശാഖകളുമെല്ലാം കണ്ടിട്ട് എന്തോ അത്തിയാണെന്നാണ് എനിക്കും തോന്നിയത്.

കായ്കൾ കണ്ടിട്ട് Ficus tinctoria (ഇത്തി) ആണോ എന്നൊരു സംശയം
