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.
