Syzygium cumini - Java Plum


Syzygium cumini - Java Plum (Syzygium cumini)

This is Java Plum which is common and grows to a massive tree.
This is a beautiful tropical tree from Malaysia and produces thousands of fruit on a small tree and possible many hundreds of thousands of fruits on a large tree. The trees' leaves resemble a Ficus tree. They grow extremely fast to around 50 to 70 feet tall. I once had many of these trees and had to give them all away because they grew too large.

The tree to the left is a mango tree.

Note: because it produces so many fruit...it has a tendency to become a weed tree in wet and even drier areas. I have seen many seedlings under large trees.

Marguerite,

This plant is growing through the large monkey enclosure at the San Diego Zoo.
