Jand (Prosopis spicigera)


Explanation:
Prosopis spicigera (P. spigicera) or Prosposis cineraria (P. cineraria) is the botanical name. In India it is known as Jand. As it is not a European plant it dies not have a common name in English. Therefore I would suggest that you use the name jand or Jhand followed by the scientific name in brackets. These sites will give you the names on other Indian languages:
