Native to Himalaya in South India, this small tree with dainty, tender green foliage is called the "Tree of Miracle", due to the many medicinal or nutritional virtues of each of its parts. Its leaves have a peppery taste, reminiscent of aragula, can be eaten raw or dried and are extremely rich in vitamin A (as much as carrots), B, C (twice as much as an orange), D, E, K, calcium (twice as much as milk), proteins, potassium (as much as a banana) and iron (as much as beef or lentils).
