Suphalā (सुफला) is another name (synonym) for Kūṣmāṇḍa, which is a Sanskrit name for the plant Benincasa hispida (ash gourd). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verse 7.160), which is an Āyurvedic medicinal thesaurus. Certain plant parts of Kūṣmāṇḍa are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), and it is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Suphalā (सुफला) is another name for Indravāruṇī, a medicinal plant identified with Citrullus colocynthis (colocynth, bitter apple or desert gourd) from the Cucurbitaceae or “gourd family” of flowering plants, according to verse 3.70-72 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The third chapter (guḍūcyādi-varga) of this book contains climbers and creepers (vīrudh). Together with the names Suphalā and Indravāruṇī, there are a total of twenty-nine Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.Source: WorldCat: Rāj nighaṇṭu
