Evergreen Jamuns

 

Bahdoli near Palghar is home to 1000 - 1200 jamun trees that bear fruits that are rarely found in markets of Mumbai. Generally a jamun weighs around 10 - 12gms each but these jamuns weigh almost 23gms and are the tastiest jamuns one can come across.

These jamuns are not found in the city since it becomes very difficult for the jamun farmers to take care of the logistics and transport this luscious fruit to the markets in Mumbai. The yearly village economy depends on these jamuns and that really make the villagers proud. This village was awarded by the agricultural university in Dapoli and since 2003 this village is fondly known as 'Jambhoolgav' which means a jamun village.
