Aegle marmelos Bael Fruit Tree
Although it has Indian roots, it is now widespread throughout Southeast Asia. Bael grows well in all types of weather and soil. It has at least 5,000 years of usage in traditional medicine and human food.
Bel fruit (Aegle marmelos), commonly known as Bengal quince, is a tree of the Rutaceae family that is grown for its fruit. Bel can also be written as bael.
The unripe fruit is traditionally cut into slices and dried in the sun to treat diarrhea and other digestive disorders.
The ripe fruit is sweet, aromatic, and cooling. The tree’s wood is yellowish white and hard but not durable. Bears strong spines and alternate compound leaves with three leaflets. The sweet-scented white flowers are borne in panicle clusters and are sometimes used in perfumes.
The fruit is pyriform (pear-shaped), oblong, and has a diameter of 5–25 cm (2–10 inches). It has a rich, delicious, orange-colored flesh and a very hard, woody rind that is either gray or yellow.
