Jumbarrich is a tree. It grows in the bush. Jumbarrich has a long, skinny, straight trunk. The leaves are smooth,long and green. Its fruit is called green plum.

Jumbarrich fruit grows every November. In Burarra we call this season Jemberr. This is the beginning of our wet season.

The fruit is small. There are lots of fruit on the trees. We shake the trunk then the fruit falls down. We like to eat the fruit. It tastes sweet.
