Often described as one of the tastiest wild fruits, Kafal is a berry found on the foolhill of the Himalayas. The raspberry-looking fruit with sweet and tangy flavors has a thin fruit coating with a large stone core, thus it's a drupe. Kafal trees are found on hills of Nepal and Northern India, between the altitudes of one and two thousand meters above sea level. Kafal changes to reddish purple color ellipsoid-shape fruit at its maturity.
