Mussoorie gets its name from a common shrub, known as Mansura, which grows in this region. Coriarianepalensis is the scientific name. During May, the Mansura berries ripen and turn a dark purple.  They have a sweet, slightly acidic flavour and are eaten by birds and monkeys. It is a favourite food of Wedge-Tailed Green Pigeons (Theronsphenura) which flock to Mussoorie at this time of year. Flag Hill and the Jabarkhet Nature Reserve is one of the best places to find both species.
