The Lovi Lovi (Flacourtia inermis) fruit tree, also known as Lovi, Batoko Plum, or Governor's Plum, is a tropical fruit tree native to Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. It produces small, round, red to purple fruits with a sweet-tart flavor, often used in jams, preserves, and desserts.


  1. Selecting a location: Choose a sunny location with well-draining soil. Lovi Lovi trees prefer a slightly acidic to neutral pH (6.0-7.0) and can tolerate mild salinity.

  2. Planting time: Plant the tree during the rainy season or early spring to ensure optimal root establishment.

  3. Preparation: Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, loosening the surrounding soil. Amend with organic matter, like compost, if needed.

  4. Planting: Gently remove the tree from its container, place it in the hole, and backfill with soil. Tamp down gently and water thoroughly.


  1. Watering: Water the Lovi Lovi tree regularly during the first year, then reduce to a deep soak every 2-3 weeks in dry periods.

  2. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring and fall, following package instructions.

  3. Pruning: Prune to maintain shape and remove dead or diseased branches. Light pruning can encourage fruit production.

  4. Pest and disease control: Monitor for pests, such as mealybugs, and treat as needed with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Fungal diseases can be prevented by maintaining proper air circulation and watering at the base of the plant.


  1. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds.

  2. Support: Stake young trees to provide support and protect against strong winds.

  3. Harvesting: Harvest the fruits when they turn from green to red or purple, typically 3-4 years after planting.


  1. Nutritional: Lovi Lovi fruits are rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, and dietary fiber, offering numerous health benefits.

  2. Culinary: The fruits can be eaten fresh or used in jams, preserves, and desserts, adding a unique flavor to various dishes.

  3. Ornamental: The Lovi Lovi tree is an attractive addition to tropical and subtropical gardens, providing shade and visual interest.

  4. Erosion control: Its extensive root system helps prevent soil erosion, making it a useful plant for stabilizing slopes and riverbanks.
