The origin of this fruit is believed to be in India itself. Wherever this fruit reached, it went from India. In ancient Ayurveda texts there is a description of Phalse and it is called ‘Parushakam’. Its juice (sorbet) has also been described in the texts. Nowadays, apart from India, it is also found and grown in Nepal, Pakistan, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. Phalsa is a very delicate fruit and cannot be carried for long distances. Therefore it is not grown in abundance and that is why it is consumed locally and its production is settled in two months. This fruit reaches the cities around which there are villages.
