Juwet fruit season, here. Can eat juwet as much. Moreover, the middle man often goes to the riverbank with his friend, and goes home with juwet. Sometimes bring juwet with small fruits, sometimes big and meat. Well, the name is also carried by the child, whichever, still eaten with gratitude.

In my hamlet, Kecapi Sudahap, juwet trees grow anywhere. Live a little, but there is. Every season, I can always eat this fruit to my heart's content. Children do too. They took one full crackle, washed and then given salt. Juwet is not crowded and tastes sweeter. But I don't like it that way. I like the unspoiled nature, not in the form of instant pickles.

Juwet fruit or Syzigium cumini is a small, oval-shaped tropical fruit the size of grapes. Shiny smooth skin. The color is black or purple black. The white flesh is rather clear. The young fruit is green, the longer it is pink, then purple, and the more blackened. If eaten, our tongue will turn purple.

Juwet seeds are quite large. Sweet and sour mixed with sweet taste. If you eat fruit that is already perfectly black, it tastes more dominantly sweet. If there is still a red tinge, there will be a sour taste that is quite disturbing for those who don't like acid. This is why the children at Ilalang Learning House prefer to salt their juwet. In addition to eliminating sour and sour taste, this method also makes juwet fruit more tender.

Juwet is also known as duwet or jamblang. This fruit is quite rare and does not always exist in traditional markets. Maybe because the villagers thought it was just juwet that the city people might not like. Considered as an unproductive tree that may not pass when tree elimination is done. Usually the villagers will cut down some trees which are considered unproductive once in a while. Some are because of the wood behavior, some are because it will make a celebration. The latter has not been done for a long time because the remaining wood stock is always abundant. But juwet trees are now only a few and many have long been cut down. Some young juwet trees I found on the street in front of the house. I once asked for the leaves for diabetes medicine an acquaintance.
