  1. hey my name is kiran….what is the name of the fruit in english..khotha….like khedu means banana…what is khotha called?

  2. Hi Kiran,

    I confirmed about this “khotha” from a Gujarati friends of mine. He says that it perhaps does not have any English name as it is available in Gujarat only. You asked about “bor” also in your mail. I guess “bor” is Indian Jujube.
