Amla is the name given to the fruit of a small leafy tree (Amlica Embillicus) which grows throughout India and bears an edible fruit. This fruit is highly prized both for its high vitamin C content and for the precious oil which is extracted from its seeds and pulp and used as a treatment for hair and scalp problems.

Indian Amla season is October to April, but fruits may be available from other countries outside these months.

During colonial times the British referred to the amla fruit as the 'Indian Gooseberry'. It is edible, very tart and rich in pectin. Because of this, it is commonly used to make jams, jellys, chutneys and other condiments.

Another common use of this fruit is in medicines and tonics since it is extremely rich in vitamin C.

In fact, it is said that the amla fruit, on a per pound basis, is the world's richest source of vitamin C.

Price is for approximately 500g
