Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu or Wax Apple

Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu or Wax Apple (Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu or Wax Apple)

These Wax Jambus are growing like crazy! They loved the rain we had in late November and December. I love the fruit on these trees! There's a flowering Dragon Eye or Longan (Dimocarpus longan) in the forefront on the left side of the pic. Photo taken on March 3, 2020 in San Diego, CA.

It's difficult to describe, different varieties have different ranges of sweetness. They're very good cold! So refreshing. :>))

They are a very beautiful, ornamental shrub or tree! It's considered an ultra-tropical tree; however, it grows very well in San Diego's nice subtropical climate.

It's widely growing in Southeast Asia, and it's native to Malaysia.
