Duhat fruit from the neighbor

A neighbor brought me some Duhat fruit. It is also called Java Plum or Black Palm fruit. But whatever it is called, Duhat is nice to eat because it is very sweet and ripe. The only problem in eating is that it can stain the clothes with the indigo color of its sap. Duhat is rare now that it is not available in the market anymore.

Jamun is a unique name similar to Ham. The Filipino word for ham is Hamon.

Jamoon is different from plum. Jamoon is Indian blue berry.

I love plums. They are small maroon or reddish colour fruits with a seed at the centre. It contains vitamin C, A and antioxidants . Also good for the bones and also helps to reduce weight. Yes the fruit juice stains your clothes if it falls while eating.

In your picture are plums. Duhat is just a name with the Java Plum but it is not a relative of the plum. First, it is very small. The seed is very big and the flesh is too thin.

@Alexandoy I didn't see the photo in your post. It is called Jamoon in Hindi language of India or Indian blue berry all over the world. Yes I know the fruit very well and my favourite. I used to climb the tree and pluck them in my childhood. If you mix the fruit with a little salt they taste great. Goats and cows like this fruit very much.

@jayanth_77 yes, I also climb the tree of my playmate. That tree always has plenty of fruits during the season of April and May. I could harvest 1 small bucket.

@Alexandoy halla. no. the duhat is smaller than the siniguelas. siniguelas has bigger seed too, and the ripe ones taste more delicious than the duhat.i think the siniguelas now are still bigger than the duhat.

When I was a child, I always thought java plums are grapes. It is one of my favorite tropical fruits.

It's very common here. Now the season is here. I had few trees in my mom's house. It's a magic fruit for diabetes. It's called jamun in India. Many don't like it for the feeling it leaves on your tongue.

It's actually far from a plum. Maybe it was named so because of the color. I cannot think of a similar fruit, no, not cherry nor apricot. It is small like a berry with a big seed and thin flesh.

@LadyDuck there are so many native fruits here that I consider exotic and worth tasting. If you know the cacao that is the source of chocolates, it is a fruit with edible seeds.

Our neighborhood is a middle class village but near our home is the big land that has tenants who are mostly laborers. They are the real people that I see who share what they can. The rich people here never do that.

@Thrilliana it is very difficult to pick the fruits especially when the tree is so big that it is risky to climb.

It is a tropical fruit so maybe in the warm parts of China you have that there.

You should eat it when you have your swimming suit on and outside to minimize the cleaning.
