Uncommon Fruits and Veggies

Had lots of these in our home in Trivandrum..Jambakka in Malayalam. Had so much of it, I am sure it is inserted in my dna.


Rose apple (Syzygium jambos) : A rose apple fruit is not a kind of rose. It is not an apple either. It will come from the rose apple tree (that is recognized with lots of titles, with respect to the nation you’re in). Rose apple fruits can also be known as the wax jambu, water apple and also bell fruit. Rose apple fruits usually are bell- or pear-shaped. Several regard them as unpalatable.


Rose Apple: Syzygium jambos Also known as the Jambos Plum, this graceful shade tree can be found in botanical gardens in many sub-tropical parts of the world and will grow as far south as Melbourne. The tree flowers continually and produces guava- like fruit that has the flavour and fragrance of rose water.

Rose Apple Seedling (Syzygium jambos)

This fruit sounds exactly like its name.  Crunchy, sweet with a strong rose fragrant!  It is tropical native to South East Asia, and it is related to Jambu Wax Apple.  These delightful fruits are said to be rich in vitamin C. ♥Growing♥It enjoys full sun, heat and humidity, but can be cold hardy up to about 35F+ for short periods. Young trees should be protected during cold nights.  It is semi deciduous.  Regular watering, or rainfall is enough to sustain the tree. Water more frequently when fruits begin to form. Fruits in the warmer months.  It can grow to 40 ft tall, but can be kept small.
