Precious Pakistani fruits and flowers

Pakistan has a vast area of land, some parts of the country being of tropical heat and others cold and temperate in climate. It is to be expected that a great range of different fruits and flowers will be found in the land. What is familiar and well known to the dweller on the hot plains will not be known to the inhabitants of the cold hill regions, and the reverse is also the case.

Grapes, Apples, Pears, Plums and Peaches flourish in many of the cooler districts. Some of these were regarded as European fruits, and were originally imported. But they grow very well in the West Pakistan. Strawberries of delightful quality are grown in shujhabad. The Pakistan orange known as Kinno, is a popular and health giving fruit. It grows widely over the plains but specially fine oranges come from Sialkot, Faisalabad, and Gujranwala districts. Melons, Bananas and Leeches and Guavas, figs of excellent quality all are found in their different districts. Indeed plantains Pakistan is well supplied but the sad thing is that this fruit so beneficial to health is not well distributed. In many poor village, an oranges never seen yet they are growing not so far away.

The flowers of Pakistan are equally varied. That which strikes the eye first is the gorgeous gold-mohur blossom which flames in the streets of Lahore and Rawalpindi in the summer months. There can be no finer scene in nature then a gold-mohur tree in full bloom. The lovely rose blooms widely, but requires a cooler climate than the plains to do really well. A very popular flower is the sweet scented jasmine, so much in demand or making garlands, when we mention perfume, there is the rat-ki-rani the Queen of the Night, not much to look at with her little white blossoms but shedding a perfume in the winter months that refreshes the senses. Lovely lilies grow in the tanks, and it would require a larger space then this article to mention even the names, of all wonderful orchids and other blossoms which adorn the hills of Pakistan.
