While wandering through Jayanagar 4th Block in Bangalore, we came across various vendors selling these four fruits – Jamun, Panneer, Figs and Plums.
The Jamun (Syzygium cumini). also called Jambul and நாக பழம் (Naga Pazham) in Tamil is a sweet but tart fruit that has a unique taste. It also has a slight astringent effect on the throat. It is one of my favorites.
The Panneer Fruit (Syzygium jambos) also called Rose Apple in English has a smell reminiscent of rosewater.

Also being sold was jackfruit. Jackfruit is another of my favorites with its intoxicating smell and sweet, rich flavor.
After walking all the way to 2nd block, we briefly stopped at a Sari Exhibition being held in one of the wedding halls.
