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.

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/
