Grewia asiatica is native to southern Asia from Pakistan east to Cambodia. In these areas it is widely cultivated and commonly known as Phalsa or Falsa. We simply refer to it a Sherbet Berry. Phalsa produces a edible drupe that is purple to black when ripe. This small fruit is loaded with antioxidants. It is eaten fresh with a sprinkling of salt and black pepper. Phalsa also make an excellent thirst quenching sherbet juice that has a cooling effect.
