Seema Usirikaya / Chalmeri / Aranelli / Harfarauri Online

The Seema Usirikaya in telugu is also called as Chalmeri, Jimbling, Harpharori in Marathi, Harfarauri in Hindi / Urdu, Gihori in Manipuri, Aranelli in Tamil, Rajamvali in Konkani and star gooseberry in english.  The scientific name of star gooseberry is Phyllanthus acidus, know by other names as Otaheite gooseberry, Malay gooseberry, Tahitian gooseberry, country gooseberry,, starberry, grosella in Puerto Rico, jimbilin in Jamaica, damsel in Grenada, karamay in the Northern Philippines, cermai in Indonesia and Malaysia, and Goanbili in Maldives.

Seema Usirikaya fruit has a unique sour tang taste. The sourness in taste is close to that of a raw mango. I used to remember these star gooseberry fruit, sold in heaps on mobile carts / thopudu bandi outside my school and were eaten raw with a sprinkle of salt and red chili powder. During school summer holidays days, we used to visit our grand parents village and there was this seems usirikaya tree right near my grand parents house and there were at many kids around my age, who used to visit the village for summer holidays. The whole gang of kids could always be found play & fight in the vicinity of the star gooseberry / Harfarauri tree. The tree is not that strong and so a good shake of the tree would result in a rain of these Aranelli berries and we kids would rush to pick as many as we could hold in out tiny hands, before the tree owner comes and shouts at us. Writing about the Chalmeri berries made me revisit the childhood, I hadn’t had one in many years. So did you have a taste of these gooseberries and did you get your share as a kid? Why not you try to get some tasty memories back from childhood by ordering the tasty, fresh and firm seema usirikayalu online from Sitara Foods & Pickles.
