400 (800)cm, Roseapple, Malabar Plum or Pomarrosa is a decorative, evergreen, tall woody shrub to small tree from Southeast Asia. It produces ornamental, glossy, dark green, leathery leaves with dense dark brownish fine hairs beneath and large white flowers followed by utmost delicous, large egg-sized, extremely aromatic, pale yellow fruits (in the offered variety, Szygium jambos var. jambos) with a single large seed inside. The taste is unique and identical to the musk rose - an almost unreal taste! A much valued fruit plant as well as an excellent and very ornamental container plant. Easily grown in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny (winter) to partially shaded (summer) spot. Plants do not grow too fast and once they are becoming too large, they can be pruned back. In winter keep plants drier at a minimum of some 15°C. We offer freshly harvested and viable seeds! V-VII.
