  17. hi,
    very interesting compilation of names of fruits.
    recently near sakleshpur, i came across a fruit which is called “haale hannu” by locals. it is pale yellow when ripe and is eaten by locals and is very sticky inside mouth when eaten and the seeds are similar to sapota seeds.
    anybody has any idea what fruit this is and what its english name is.

    thanks.
