Bunch Jambolan FruitBy Jumroonyos Mahasawat All Rights Reserved, Used By Permission (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Syzygium cumini

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. 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 esteemed by Buddhists throughout Asia and often planted near Hindu temples. It naturalized across Hawaii and has some weed potential in tropical regions, due to seed dispersal by birds.

Jambolan Plum (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 494 days 9hrs

Comments: - Hasn't fruited yet so can't comment on taste. It is a vigorous grower and probably not suited to small areas. Ours is in the "rainforest" type area and is very easy to grow. It never gets chorotic or bothered by cold/heat. I think it's the parrots eating the top growth that is keeping it contained so far though.

Planted: 2014

Height 4 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Slow release organic chook manure pellets in warm season.
