MALAY APPLE

Malay AppleBotanical Name: Syzygium malaccense
Description

This attractive evergreen tree is native to Southeast Asia. It has large, dark-green glossy leaves and large (2") 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.

Comments: -

Has lovely large glossy leaves, and an apparently stunning pink flower which is produced abundantly, followed by large pink/red fruits which can vary in quality from sweet to sour.

Is one of my more tropical plants so will probably be babied a year or two in a pot.
