As far as I know, this is a native plant in Kuwait?
I didn't know that :)I have older shots in my archives too - somewhere :-D
I will load a photo of the fruit of this plant
Do you know that only Donkeys eat this plant. Also the beduins in the old days use it as a gun powder.
This is Calotropis procera (Sodom's apple milkweed) indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula whereas Calotropis gigantea (Crown flower or giant milkweed) is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent.
Calotropis gigantea or Calotropis procera
