Summer Fruits: Black Currant (ଜାମୁ କୋଳି)

Black Currant well know as Jamukoli (Odia: ଜାମୁ କୋଳି) or jambu fruit in Odisha is another summer fruit. Actually, this is not pure summer fruit, but it available at the end of summer. That's why some consider this as the monsoon fruit. This is in high demand not just because of its unique tangy taste but due to its precious medicinal properties as well. The fruit is harvested in the month of June. 

And you could find two types of black currants; One is the elliptical shape and another one is rounded shape. The elliptical shaped are mainly available in this time and the rounded shape take some more time i.e. during monsoon. Here we have two snaps of the elliptical shaped, but share the rounded shape in near future, when it would be available.
