Delight your eyes, your heart, and your health with this garden standout: The Malay apple tree (Syzygium malaccense, Malay rose-apple, mountain apple, water apple). This is an old world tropical fruit tree, with a native range that remains uncertain (with suspected origins in Malaysia). However, its known status as a naturalized fruiting tree in tropical areas of South America is proof of its hardy growing habits. The Malay apple tree can soar up to 60 feet in height in the wild, but can remain low and dense when in cultivation. The Malay apple tree requires warm and humid growing conditions for best results.

It makes for a fascinating addition to any tropical tree collection, with new growth appearing as a wine-red color. Malay apple trees seem to flower in secret, with flowers covered by foliage and largely unseen until they are on the ground. Malay fruits are popular in regions where the tree is naturalized. Fruits will mature 60 days after flowering, and should be hand-picked for best results. Although some people report a fairly bland taste from the fruit, the waxy, rose-colored skin and white, crisp flesh makes it a sweet temptation.
