Chakaiya sort of amla is susceptible to bearing heavy crops during alternate years. The fruits of the tree are typically fibrous and smaller in size than the fruits of other amla varieties. Certain Chakaiya selections, however, combat varying characteristics. for instance, the NA4 selection also referred to as Kanchan, has larger fruits than the quality Chakaiya amla. The NA4 fruits are also more fibrous, however, which makes them popular to be used in manufacturing but not for culinary applications. In contrast, the NA6 selection of Chakaiya amla may be a heavy-bearing tree that produces low-fiber fruits. These less fibrous fruits are ideal for creating amla candies and preserves.
