Amla (Indian gooseberry / Phyllanthus Emblica) is a perennial, small to medium-sized tree with finely pinnate flowers. Its green-yellow, table tennis ball-sized fruits reach full maturity in autumn and are traditionally harvested by hand.
In classical Ayurveda, the Indian gooseberry is considered a sacred fruit around which many stories entwine. It is said that one of the trunks of Brahma, the horse god, fell to the ground and the Amla tree grew out of it. The holy fruit, however, is quite fibrous and tastes very bitter and astringent.
