Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu Fruit

Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu Fruit (Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu Fruit)

The Wax Jambu fruit is just about to ripen. I love this fruit... it tends to be sweet and very, very juicy! This Malaysian, Indonesian, and Indian tree has become quite popular in the last 10 years or so. It's a little temperamental about our hard water though.

Never heard of this fruit, what a name to conjure with....

It's also called a Wax Apple (although not a true apple).

I had one a couple of year ago. I think it had some major problems with our hard water or soil ph...not sure exactly. It died in the summer of 2008.

I'll post a pic of it when it was thriving.
