  • It grows all over India, but thrives best in places with a hot dry summer, provided irrigation is available. In the areas where winter is too cold, the tree is deciduous. But in plains it is evergreen. Severe cold climate in winter helps to better fruit quality. Slight change in atmosphere does not affect the fruit yield. But more clear sunlight and dry climate from flowering to fruitsetting leads to increase in sweetness of the fruits. In humid weather, the quality of fruit is not good. It can stand considerable frost and grows up to an altitude of 1,600 metres. The crop is widely popular in the low rainfall areas, where irrigation is available.
