Himalayan Plants - Hodgsonia Heteroclita Fruit

By Calcuttan

- +

This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J. F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W. H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J. D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker's description. “The name heteroclita was given by Dr. Roxburgh to this plant (which he, not being acquainted with the fruit, supposed to belong to TrichosantJies), in allusion to its differing considerably from the genus to which he referred it; we have retained the name, because its fruit proves it to be even more heteroclite, or anomalous, as regards the natural family to which it belongs. The great melon-like fruit, called "Kathior-pot" by the Lepchas, ripens in autumn and winter.
