Wax Jambu - Red

A bit too tropical for my area. Tree spends all Spring and half of Summer just recovering it's size and vigour after Winter setback. Good luck below Brisbane. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 30-May-2006

Another one of my favourite fruits. Its so refreshing on a hot summers day, you can pick it straight from the tree and your satisfied from the minute you taste it. Very crunchy fruit, beautiful flowers. Cant wait till it bears fruit. High hopes for this tree. Growing great at the moment, high burst of new growth.

Wax Jambu - Red

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 3307 days 2hrs

Comments: - Started growing quickly, but then at the start of winter it got attacked by ants and their aphids, so I white oiled. Got rid of the pests, but then the leaves started browning and dropping, then the branches shrivelled up and the plant just died. I think the spot it was in may have been a bit too shaded, the ground a bit cold/wet or perhaps my giant lawn/beetle grubs got at its roots. Whatever it was, any treatments came too late to save it...
