Syzygium cumini – Lomboy – Duhat – Java Plum
Is native in the Philippines, India, Burma, Ceylon, and the Andaman Islands. It was long ago introduced into and became naturalized in Malaya. In southern Asia, the tree is venerated by Buddhists, and it is commonly planted near Hindu temples because it is considered sacred to Krishna. The leaves and fruits are employed in worshiping the elephant-headed god, Ganesha or Vinaijaka, the personification of “Pravana” or “Om”, the apex of Hindu religion and philosophy.

Religious – The Fruit of the Gods
“In Hindu, Buddhist and Jain cosmology, the Jamun tree is located in the center of the Island Continent known as Jambudwipa. A favorite of Lord Ram in exile, it is regarded as the fruit of the Gods. Worshippers of Ganesh and Lord Krishna particularly vest a lot of religious significance in the Jamun tree, and leaves of the tree are offered in all ritual offerings. They’re also used for temple decoration and in the doorway of houses, to ensure perpetuity, continuity, and a stable marriage! In Kerala, the Jamun fruit is a common symbol of prosperity in kolam designs that decorate the entrance to temples and homes.”
The tree is a rich source of vitamin A and C and is used as a preventive medication against diabetes, liver, heart and gout, blood pressure, and sinusitis problems. Ayurvedic medicines use all the parts of the tree, as medicinal properties exist in every segment of the tree. The Jamun fruit makes the most delicious vinegar and cider or summer squash. A friend makes a delicious Jamun sorbet but refuses to share his recipe. Do experiment making it, just substitute orange juice with Jamun juice.
“The fruits of the tree are very tasteful; One who regularly consumes the juice of the Jambu tree does not suffer from old age, disease and can even resist death…” – Vayu Puran, Chapter 46, Verse 28/29.
