(Terminalia Chebula )

Terminalia chebula, commonly known as black- or chebulic myrobalan, is a species of Terminalia, native to South Asia from India. This tree yields smallish, ribbed, and nut-like fruits which are picked when still green and then pickled, boiled with a bit of added sugar in their syrup, or used in preserves. The seed of the fruit, which has an elliptical shape, is an abrasive seed enveloped by a fleshy and firm pulp. Seven types of fruit are recognized (Vijaya, Rohini, putana, amrita, Abhaya, jivanti, and chetak), based on the region where the fruit is harvested, as well as the color and shape of the fruit. Generally speaking, the Vijaya variety is preferred, traditionally grown in the Vindhya Range of west-central India, and has a roundish as opposed to a more angular shape. The fruit also provides material for tanning leather and dyeing cloth. Terminalia chebula is a main ingredient in the Ayurvedic formulation of Triphala
