June Plum was introduced to Jamaica by Captain Bligh in 1782.

But funny enough, this tangy tasting fruit is not called June Plum in other places, it is actually called Jew Plum, Golden Apple, Kedondong and even Hog Plum. This fruit was said to have been first found in Hawaii.

The tree grows quickly and it can be quite tall although we are seeing more and more of the dwarfed versions in Jamaica today.

That dwarfed version is ideal for those who love it but don’t have enough space in the backyard to cultivate the giant tree or who prefer not to interfere with the neighbours space.

In Jamaica we enjoy the fruit in many different ways.

I may be stewed with sugar – yes stewed :-), made into jellies, jams or pickles or (my favourite) – juiced!

Kids here love to have it green – peeled with salt.

June Plum is a good source of vitamin C and Iron and it said to be able to relieve the effects of high blood pressure, heart conditions, urinary tract problem and even diabetes!
