Jamun has a tangy, tart, and subtly sweet taste well suited for fresh or cooked preparations. The fruits can be eaten straight, out of hand, removing the seeds, and the pigmented dark purple flesh will stain clothing, fingers, lips, and tongues. Jamun is also called a Black Plum. The black plum is known to relieve stomach pain, carminative, anti-scorbutic, and diuretic. Jamuns are low on calories, which makes them the perfect healthy snack. They also aid digestion and promote natural bowel movement.
