Irrigate the pits to let the soil settle down. February-March or July-August is the right time for planting.

Caring for Bel Tree

  • Young plants are trained with the help of stakes so that they can grow straight.
  • Bael plants are most susceptible to water logging, care should be taken to avoid such a condition.
  • Suckers appearing from root stock should be removed periodically.

Typical uses of Bel Tree

Special features:

Culinary use: Bael fruits may be cut in half, or the soft types broken open, and the pulp, dressed with palm sugar, eaten for breakfast, as is a common practice in Indonesia.
The pulp is often processed as nectar or "squash" (diluted nectar). A popular drink (called "sherbet" in India) is made by beating the seeded pulp together with milk and sugar. A beverage is also made by combining bael fruit pulp with that of tamarind. These drinks are consumed perhaps less as food or refreshment than for their medicinal effects.

Medicinal use: Bael benefits in healing digestive disorders, ulcers, headache, hypertension, diabetes, and numerous other ailments. The ripe fruit works as a laxative but is not digested easily. Unripe bael fruit, on the other hand, promotes digestion and cures diarrhea. Apart from the fruit, the root, bark, leaves as well as flowers of bel tree have medicinal value.

Note: The following information is general guidelines. Be sure to ask your healthcare provider for guidelines.
