Jamun is a large tropical fruiting tree that can live for hundreds of years and produce thousands of fruit each year.  Native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, Jamun thrives in tropical regions but it's cold hardiness makes it an excellent fruit tree to grow outdoors in subtropical climates.

The dark purple-black fruit is sweet, tangy and astringent. It's less astringent and slightly juicier at peak ripeness. Jamun is historically used in traditional Auyerveda to prevent diabetes. Jamun is an excellent source of antioxidants, phytochemicals and vitamin C.  It contains high levels of carotene, iron, folic acid, calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. The fruit can be eaten fresh or made into wines and vinegars/

The Jamun tree is also known as Jambul, Black Plum, Java Plum, and Jambolan.

    Jamun's New Home

    Little Jamun arrived today looking firm, strong and green as a new, fresh, coconut frond. After a few days adjusting to its neighborhood it will be planted where it may grow to its maximum 80 foot height and thrive for a few hundred years feeding the neighborhood and maybe beyond with its healthy fruit. Looking good.

    Grows REALLY fast

    Bought 2 of these last spring and one is full sun is over 4 feet tall, the other in 1/3 day shade is not quite 3 feet tall. They are in a north-facing lot and received no cold protection, and are still producing new growth. Great tree for zone 9.

    Happy with this purchase!

    I ordered two of these plants. Both were received as healthy-looking plants and were very carefully and neatly packaged.
