The evergreen Jamun plant is originally from Indonesia, Surinam and India.
An evergreen tropical tree 50 to 100 ft. tall, with oblong opposite leaves that are smooth, glossy; they have a turpentine smell. The bark is scaly gray and the trunk forks into multiple trunks about 3 - 5' from the ground
Jamun has fragrant white flowers in branched clusters at stem tips and purplish-black oval edible berries.
The juicy fruit-pulp contains resin, gallic acid and tannin; it tastes usually from acid to fairly sweet.
The somewhat astringent, jamun fruit can be utilized for juice. This berry has only one seed. Although a tropical tree, it grows easy in sub-tropical climates and can also be found in Florida, USA.
Jambul has long been used as anti diabetic and carminative, in diarrhea, stomachache, astringent and diuretic. Very useful in leucorrhoea, and dysentery.
Cost of 60 vege capsules or 500 gm of Jamun seed powder is of $18.00
