JAMBU – A divine rose apple tree mentioned in the Bhagavata Purana

This tree bore fruit throughout the year, fruit the size of elephants. The branches of the Jambu tree reached to heaven. The juice of the fruit flowed as a river. According to the Bhagavata Purana the Jambu tree was watered by devas (gods) called Siddhacaranas. Near the tree lived the goddess of the tree, who was called Jambvadini or Aruna. She blessed everybody, even people who merely thought about her, and cured them of all diseases. The juice of the fruit mixed with soil and water turned into gold that was much more refined than ordinary gold.
