June plum juice is one of my favourite fruit juices. It has a tangy taste but still very refreshing, perfect for the hot Jamaican weather.

It is very simple and easy to make with just a few ingredients.

The June plum fruit have oval like shape with green skin when the fruit is not fully ripe and golden yellow when it is.

The fruit can be eaten both when it is green or fully ripe.

When ripe the June plum is sweet with a hint of lime just under the skin.

This fruit is called June plum in Jamaica but also known all Jew Plum, Golden Apple or Kedondong in other countries.

Like most fruits in Jamaica, the June plum is mostly eaten raw.

But is it also used to make June plum stew, jam, jelly or a refreshing juice like I did in this post.

June plum juice is very easy to make, all you need is a few June plums, sugar, ginger, water and a blender.

You may use either ripe or green June plums.

I used green one for this recipe but I do prefer ripe June plums because are sweeter.

This June plum drink not only taste great, it is also full of vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin K.

It is also rich in calcium, iron and is a great antioxidant. So I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to try the recipe.

  • Pull to chill. Best server cold!


I saw someone made June plum drink without peeling the June plums and I tried it with this recipe. I didn’t feel it made any different to the drink in term of taste. It did made the drinker greener in colour, because I use only green June Plum.
