Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu, Java Apple

Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu, Java Apple (Syzygium samarangense - Wax Jambu, Java Apple)

Wax Jambu is a beautiful little has become very popular in recent years. It was thought for many years it could not be grown here because of being so ultra-tropical. However, I know of some pretty large trees around and I get bags of fruit from a friend every year. The fruit is very juicy and sweet, delicious!

This plant is native to ultra-tropical Malaysia.

This plant needs to be hosed off because of the spider-webs.

We have a lot of spiders in our area. They can create many webs on trees and plants...I usually just hose the plants generally gets rid of most of the spider-webs.
