About This Plant :

Malacca Apple (Syzygium malaccense) is native to Malaysia but has been introduced throughout the tropics, including many Caribbean countries such as Jamaica ,Puerto Rico, and Trinidad and Tobago, It is also known as jambu bol (Indonesian, meaning "Ball Guava"), Malay Rose Apple, Otaheite Cashew and Pommerac (derived from pomme du lac, meaning "Milk Apple" in French). Highly ambiguous terms, such as "Malacca apple", "rose apple", "water apple", "mountain apple", "pomarosa" or "plum rose" are sometimes used for this plant or its fruit; they can refer to almost any species of Syzygium grown for its fruit. The name "Otaheite apple" is used too (in Jamaica), but should better be used for the Tahitian Apple (Spondias dulcis); "Otaheite" is an obsolete transcripstion of "Tahiti". Its Hawaiian name is ʻōhiʻa ʻai, meaning "edible ironwood".

The fruit is oblong-shaped and dark red in color, although some varieties have white or pink skin. The flesh is white and surrounds a large seed. The flesh makes a jam prepared by stewing with brown sugar and ginger.

Malay Rose Apple trees thrive in tropical climates with an annual rainfall of 152 cm or more. They can grow at a variety of altitude , from sea level up to 2740 m. The trees themselves can grow from 12-18m in height. They flower in early summer, bearing fruit three months afterward. In Costa Rica they flower earlier, with ripe fruit in June.
