MYRICA ESCULENTA WILD EDIBLE FRUIT OF INDIAN HIMALAYA: NEED A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH FOR INDIGENOUS UTILIZATIONYogendra Singh Gusain and Vinod Prasad Khanduri
Myrica esculenta Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don is a popular, potentially income-generating wild edible tree species in the Indian Himalaya. Almost all the part of the tree has medicinal properties. The fruit is eaten as raw and can be used for the production of several kind of by product.
