Growing Jamun

Jamun propagation is usually through seedlings, but grafting and budding are also gaining popularity.

Jamun or Syzygium cumini is a medium-sized evergreen tree that can reach up to 100 feet in height. It can have a wide canopy, due to which it is sometimes used as a shade tree.

It prefers a hot and humid climate and can tolerate a range of soils, including sandy loam and clay. The tree requires full sun exposure to produce fruit; as a matter of fact, Jamun is also used as a shade tree. Jamun seedlings are recommended to plant at a distance of at least 25 feet from other trees. The tree usually survives unattended. However, watering in dry conditions is helpful during the fruiting period.

Jamun is usually not pruned. Graft, bud, and layer jamun plants may be grown in containers; jamun plant seedlings are not recommended to be grown in containers.

The jamun tree flowers in March–April and bears fruit in June. From a single tree, 10–100 kg of jamun fruit are produced,
