Bim pol(Trichopus Zeylanicus)

A herb native to Sri Lanka, and found in the wet low lands, and also in Ritigala. The fruit is said to give strenth and vitality, and the Sanskrit name means "Health giving green". The export of the herb is forbidden in Sri Lanka presumably to privent bio-piracy. However, little is done in Sri Lanka about commercializing it.
