That is Syzygium moorei, also known as the coolamon. While the fruits are edible, they are rather tasteless and are not good eating, and it is planted as an ornamental instead.

Hi SarZaj

Looks like a white wax jambu (syzygium jambolana) to me. It can grow in Toogoolawah, Queensland.

Happy Gardening :-)

S.forte? Sure seems to be a Syzigium.

Yes it could be a white malaccensis and the flowers will give away its identity.

Similar to what fruity said but it looks like a syzygium jambos known as the rose apple not jambu, I'm not 100% sure though as it also could be the coolamon Daleys sell, does it have much of a taste?

I would discredit the Asian edible species above since the fruits are disc shaped rather than conical, and the leaves are broader, less tapered and thicker than those species.

S. forte as suggested by Mike or S. moorei are my picks, but at this stage only flowers will confirm.

Hey All,

I didn't know what this fruit was and still don't know for sure.
I didn't even know what a 'Sygyzium' was either so it made me even more interested to find out. So I started to google all the Syzygiums mentioned. Wow!! So many different types and they all looked amazing too. I even came to learn that a favourite of mine belongs to the Syzygium family. That been the wax apple (Syzygium Samarangense). It's always good to learn something new, especially of interest to myself.
Getting back to the fruit at hand. After much searching of all the different types of Syzygiums and comparing it back to Sarjaz's pics, I'm in agreement with Pademelon and Peter. That the fruit been the Coolamon - Syzygium Moorei. I came to this agreement because of the rounded leaves on the pics posted. S.moorei and S.forte also has rounded shaped leaves, where as S.jambolana has slightly pointed leaves thus ruling it out. All were correct in pointing straight to the Syzygium family though.
Actually had fun doing a little bit of research work. But doing so has showed me there is so much more out there for me to get to know and learn. And that makes it exciting.

Flesh is too thick for jambos and not a wax apple.
