Also called Safed Jamun, this fruit looks like something between a peach and an almost yellow coloured mangosteen and has a flavour that is a very distinct ‘rose'.

It makes for a great snack for diabetics as it works wonders on your pancreas.

Moreover, Jambu juice coupled with rock salt helps in curing indigestion, constipation and diarrhea. You can always improvise and make a fruit sherbet, syrup or squash. So dig in whenever you find them and bid your woes goodbye.

Jambu or the Rose Apple comes in distinct colours and 100 gm of this pretty fruit will give you only 25 calories. Being the powerhouse of vitamin C, this fruit is excellent for boosting your immune system. With a good amount of heart friendly potassium (and nil sodium) this fruit is great for keeping your blood pressure in check.
