Flacourtiaceae > Flacourtia jangomas var. ,

Flacourtia jangomas, Indian plum, coffee plum, is a lowland and mountain rain forest tree in the Salicaceae or Willow Family.[1][2] It is widely cultivated in Southeast and East Asia, and has escaped cultivation in a number of places.[3]. Its wild origin is unknown but is speculated to be tropical Asia, perhaps India.[3][4] It is a small shrub or tree that grows to a height of 10m. It produces small white to green fragrant flowers. The fruit is eaten both raw and cooked as a jam, and the bark is sometimes used medicinally.[1][2] It is sometimes harvested for its lumber. The plant is considered one of the primary host plants of the Queensland fruit fly (Bactrocera tryoni)[5]
