This CD, which is PDF format,  has basic information about 30 wild growing fruits, 11 wild growing nuts and 10 wild growing edible plants.  The information has been presented as 203 Power Point slides.  The CD also has 153 pictures (89 of fruits, 22 of nuts and 36 of wild edible plants).

   
My book, WILD FRUITS OF THE SUB-HIMALAYAN REGION, that was published in 1982, contained information about 26 wild fruits only.  It had only 25 black and white plates of just ordinary quality. I continued working on these plants after 1982 too and the CD is the outcome of that work.

    The CD has recently been reviewed in Summer 2007 issue of Pomona.  A copy of this review is also being given below.

Price: US$15 payable in advance into PayPal account parmarch@sancharnet.in or through Western Union Money Transfer.
