The Wax Jambu is a rare fruit tree native to tropical and subtropical regions of Southeast Asia. The unique fruit is a beautiful bright greem color and is shaped like a bell. The fruit's snowy white flesh is crisp and refreshing like an apple and has a light, mildly sweet and flowery rose flavor.

Growing the exotic Wax Jambu fruit tree is really quite easy. They like humidity and moisture but not standing water. Wax Jambu can grow in a variety of soil conditions, as long as the soil is fertile and well-draining.  Wax Jambu trees may grow up to 40 feet in their native tropics, but can be maintained at a smaller height or even grown in containers.  Common names for Wax Jambu are Love Apple, Java Apple, and Semarang Rose-Apple.

Wax Jambu is in the Syzygium (Myrtle) family of plants, along with Jamun, Phak Mek, and Malay Apple.

    Beautiful and Tall!

    Received my order promptly and in excellent condition. No damage from shipping and the tree was packed snug in it's box. It was taller than I expected with a decent canopy. I am so excited to see it's progress! Thanks again!
