The founder of this exceptional garden, driven purely by passion, nurtures this rare gourd tree without any commercial agenda. At this oasis, the bottle gourd, known for its remarkable iron content, is cultivated for personal use. Remarkably, the vegetable derived from this tree stands apart with its unique black hue, owing to its high iron concentration.

Dr. Sarvesh Kumar, an expert from the Government Ayurvedic Hospital, identifies this gourd tree as a rare and valuable species, abundant in iron. Each part of this enigmatic tree possesses distinct medicinal virtues. The black vegetable, extracted from its unusual fruits, stands as a testament to its medicinal richness.

Witness the awe-inspiring transformation from flower to fruit, as a leper emerges from the blossoms adorning this gourd tree. Gradually taking shape, these flowers metamorphose into the distinctive bottle gourd in due course. The flowers themselves, when crafted into delectable dumplings, tantalize the taste buds, while the leaves bear a striking resemblance to the texture of jackfruit.

But the wonders don't cease there. Extracted from its seeds, an oil brimming with therapeutic benefits emerges. Packed with a plethora of nutrients such as vitamin C, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and manganese, this oil serves as a potent remedy for headaches. Furthermore, it aids in reducing hair fall, promoting thicker, lustrous locks. (Disclaimer: The information provided regarding medicinal benefits is based on expert opinions.
