Abstract: Indigenous technical knowledge (ITK) on the processing of fruit pulp of multipurpose tree Choerospondias axillaries (Roxb.) Burtt & Hill locally known as Lapsi has been communicated. It is a potential agro- forestry tree species for income generating and nutrient supplementation in the mid hills of Nepal. Farmers normally process the fruits for their household needs as pickles and chutney, etc. by crushing and boiling the fruits, whereas entrepreneurs purchase the fruits from growers and produce varieties of edible pulp cake indigenously called Titaura items for selling in the market of Nepal as well as neighbouring countries. It has been found instrumental to raise the socio- economic status of the rural people.
