The walking mango tree

The mango tree, which finds talk about in the list of 50 custom trees of Gujarat, has a number of exclusive features not seen in another place as of its skill to walk in Sanjan Bandar in Bulsar district of south Gujarat. The mango tree in tardy Vali Ahmed Achchu's farmland has moved about 200 metres from its inventive place in more than two centuries and is ongoing its walk. Its branches grow parallel to the ground from the main stem. Roots develop from a part of the branch that touches the ground, which develops in the form of a stem and the original stem dries off. Last year the forest department took almost 500 samples from the tree for implanting but failed. The mangoes from the tree are reasonably minor in size and turn flaming red when ripe.
