JAMBOLAN PLUM Syzygium cumini

While native to India, Burma and Ceylon, it is now widespread across much of Asia and is also very popular in much of South America. Carries many common names including Java plum, Portuguese plum, Malabar plum, Black plum, Purple plum, Damson plum and Indian blackberry.

It is a fast growing very attractive tree highly redeamed by Buddists throughout Asia and often planted near Hindu temples. It naturalized across Hawaii and has some weed potential in tropical regions, due to seed dipsersal by birds.

The Jambolan is frost sensitive when young but once established is hardy to most conditions. It can tolerate strong winds and can be used as a windbreak tree. It can also tolerate prolonged flooding and dry periods. It is limited to fruit production in tropical regions in elevations from sea level to 600m above sea level. Given such conditions it fruits prolifically.

The fruit can be eaten fresh or used in making Pies, Sauces, Jams and Juices.
