This attractive evergreen tree is native to Southeast Asia. It has large, dark-green glossy leaves and large, red-purple flowers set in clusters that appear tassel-like. The deep-red oval fruit has a thin skin and white crispy flesh with an aromatic, sweet mild flavor. Strictly tropical requiring a humid climate. Hardy in most soil types and tolerant of water-logging. Malay apple's make great thirst quenching snacks. Fruits can be eaten fresh but are best as a stewed dessert. The fruit can also be used to make wines.

$29.00 ($19.75-$29.00 choose a size)
