Wikipedia Abstract

Ziziphus nummularia, also called Jharber (Hindi: झड बेर), is a species of Ziziphus native to the Thar Desert of western India and southeastern Pakistan and south Iran (where it is called رمیلک ramilak in Persian). Ziziphus nummularia is a shrub up to 2 metres (6.6 ft) high, branching to form a thicket. The leaves are rounded like those of Ziziphus zizyphus but differ from these in having a pubescence on the adaxial surface. The plant is commonly found in agricultural fields.
