Giant Lau Lau

Syzygium megacarpa

Fruit display of the Giant Lau Lau fruit showing white flesh and stunning bright red skin

This tree is scattered everywhere across the Pacific. Very popular in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The giant long glossy leaves make it a spectacular feature before you even spot the fruit. The stunning fruit is bright red and has a crisp apple like flavour, although some can be a little watery. If you have some space in a frost free garden this tree will be a treasure. Even though tropical it grows and fruits well in the North Coast of NSW. With adequate water it grows at a rapid rate reaching up to 6-7m

Amazing beautiful tree with leaves 50cm long then this year , after 5 years after planting out in the footpath, it flowered, the flowers came straight out of the trunk and major branches. Now , late Jan , the fruit taste like crispy sweet lilly pillys
