The bark is scaly gray and the trunk forks into multiple trunks about 3 - 5' from the ground.
Jamun has fragrant white flowers in branched clusters at stem tips and purplish-black oval edible berries.
The juicy fruit-pulp contains resin, gallic acid and tannin; it tastes usually from acid to fairly sweet.
The somewhat astringent, jamun fruit can be utilized for juice.
This berry has only one seed. Although a tropical tree, it grows easy in sub-tropical climates and can also be found in Florida, USA.
