About Dr. Chiranjit Parmar


Dr. Parmar was born at Mandi, Himachal Pradesh in 1939. He did his Ph.D. in horticulture from the University of Udaipur in 1972.
Dr. Parmar has worked in many universities and private companies in India and abroad. He is the most widely travelled fruit scientist in India having experience of working in all the climatic regions of the world. He has been to 34 countries in all the continents of the world.
Most research of Dr. Parmar has been on wild growing and lesser known fruits.He is now known internationally for his work on Himalayan wild fruits.
Dr. Parmar is a prolific writer. Besides a book and a CD ROM, he has written hundreds of articles on fruits in Indian and foreign magazines as well as newspapers. His cartoon strip, “FRUIT FACTS’ containing little known interesting facts about various fruits was published by a prominent English daily in its weekly supplement for three years.
Besides writing on his subject of fruits, Dr. Parmar has also started documenting interesting anecdotes from his lifelong experiences, especially during his overseas travels, in his blog, “AROUND THE WORLD IN SEARCH OF FRUITS, FRIENDS AND NEW EXPERIENCES”, which can bee seen at the link, fruitipedia.blogspot.com. At the moment, there are 72 posts in this blog which have been viewed by over 1,34,000 persons.
Fruitipedia was hosted by Dr. Parmar in 2008 with articles on 200 fruits. Articles have been continuously added to it. Fruitipedia has been viewed by over 3.2 million people since then. It gets between 1000 to 1500 hits every day. Dr. Parmar’s dream was that Fruitipedia should contain introductory information about ALL fruits of the world and he has been continuously working on that.
Fruitipedia was originally prepared in HTML which is now getting outdated and not conveniently accessible in modern devices like smartphones and tabs. So, it was decided to revamp the whole web site in Word Press. The result is before you.

DR. PARMAR’S CD ON WILD FRUITS OF THE SUB-HIMALAYAN REGION

This CD, which is PDF format,  has basic information about 30 wild growing fruits, 11 wild growing nuts and 10 wild growing edible plants.  The information has been presented as 203 Power Point slides.  The CD also has 153 pictures (89 of fruits, 22 of nuts and 36 of wild edible plants).

My book, WILD FRUITS OF THE SUB-HIMALAYAN REGION, that was published in 1982, contained information about 26 wild fruits only.  It had only 25 black and white plates of just ordinary quality. I continued working on these plants after 1982 too and the CD is the outcome of that work.

The CD has recently been reviewed in Summer 2007 issue of Pomona.  A copy of this review is also being given below.

Price: US$15 payable in advance into PayPal account parmarch@sancharnet.in or through Western Union Money Transfer.
