Indian Gooseberry Tree, Malacca Emblic (phyllanthus emblica)

A small to medium-sized, semi-deciduous tree native to southern Asia with small leaves in a pinnate arrangement and cherry to apricot sized fruits that are very popular in Asia despite being sour, astringent and somewhat bitter. They are used fresh, pickled, candied, in chutneys, for baking or seasoning. They are high in Vitamin C and have many uses in traditional medicine, as do other parts of the plant.
