Fruits of Labour: Mulvany House

Mulvany House is an Old Age Home in Kolkata, India having over 20 residents, 
the eldest being a sprightly 92 year old lady who served in the second World War.

The day the trees were planted coincided with the birthdays of a donor sponsor
as well as a resident -see Birthday Showers of blessings

Some of the trees that have started bearing fruits in the very first season.


 A pomegranate announcing the coming of spring and its first fruit.

 The lady in charge of the home looking at the mangoes that have sprung forth from the tree 
that she helped plant just a few months ago.

Gandhoraj Neboo, Kafir Lime a speciality of Eastern India, highly prized for its fragrance.

 Guavas. The elderly residents dont want many of these, they cant bite into the hard skin.

 The elderly residents prefer soft fruits like Bananas, Chikoo (Sapota), Papaya and Custard Apples.

 The Banana plants are ready to flower and we expect the fruits by Mid- August.

 Cheeku (Sapota), fruits of labour.
