Jamu, jambol, java plum or Indian blackberry are not only nutritious and refreshing, but are also effective in combating sun’s heat and a number of health problems.
Popular for its sweet and slightly sour flavor, and that soft & fleshy consistency, jamun’s are a pure delight for everyone, especially considering the fact that they’re a rich source of proteins, vitamins, antioxidants, flavonoids, manganese, potassium, phosphorous and calcium.
Do you also check for a purple patch on your tongue after eating a handful of jamun’s? Of course you do! Who doesn’t? Who doesn’t like gorging on sweet & sour jamus on a parched summer day? Referred to as the ‘Fruit of Gods’ in India, this purple olive-like fruit becomes widely available in summer.
