I have had this tree in my yard for over 20 years. I have seen a few berries, close to the top, too far to reach, and never of enough interest to
This year the tree has come into its own. It is quite large. Its branches are abundant, and the fruit is overflowing. I had no idea what it was, so I
had to go looking. I found out it is a Java plum tree. I am hoping there will be someone with access to ATS, that can tell me about their personal
knowledge of this tree and its fruit.
From what I have found on the internet it is common in India and Asia, and is used to treat darn near about everything. They call it the wonder tree
because all parts of the tree, the bark, roots, leaves, and fruit, is used for medicinal purposes.
I tasted the fruit. It is described as:
They have a dark purple to almost black skin with a starkly contrasting pink or white flesh. The flesh is extremely juicy and has a flavor that
combines sweet and tart with a slightly astringent aftertaste.
I could not have described the taste better.
