Indian plum / Coffee plum

Flacourtia jangomas

Notes:

These beautiful berries are from a tree in my backyard. They might look very inviting and juicy, but are very sour. Usually, used in making pickle. In malayalam it is called Lovelolikka/ ലൗലോലിക്ക.

Thank you New Yorker, I saw that in a site too, but I could't get anymore information. So I am confused, if it could be called 'cranberry' or not. When I searched for cranberry in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cranberry
I saw that it is a group of evergreen shrubs. But here, for this tree in my spotting, the leaves are different and its not a shrub. I will add the picture of the whole tree soon.
Thank you
