How to grow it

  • Wash the Jamun fruit first and remove all of the pulp.
  • Take the seeds and let them air dry for a day.
  • They’ll get completely dry, and the seed’s color will shift from white to brown.
  • The potting mix is the next step. 60 percent standard garden soil, 20% fine sand, and the remaining 20% organic compost should be used to make the mix. Mix it thoroughly once it’s been added. You should use your hand to enjoy this process.
  • Once the mix is complete, fill small pots or grow bags with gravel and a small hole in the center.
  • After you’ve placed the gravel, it’s time to add the potting mix.
