Himalayan Wild Cherry (Prunus cerasoides)

The Himalayan Wild Cherry is a sacred plant in Hindu mythology. It is locally known as “nang phaya suea khrong,” and, when in full bloom, closely resembles the famed Japanese sakura, or cherry blossom; hence it is popularly called Thai sakura. The tree thrives only in areas between 1,000 and 2,000 meters above sea level in northern Thailand, especially at Doi Mae Salong. Propagated by seed, it is deciduous and grows to about 10 - 15 meters in height. The flowers are in clusters, conical shaped, and have 5 petals 1-2 cm in diameter, with colors ranging from light to deep pink. It flowers from December to February, and the flowers serve as a rich source of nectar and pollen for bees. The round fruits are edible and are usually pickled.
