Pot Size

The Rose Apple, part of the Myrtaceae family (without any actual relation to roses or apples),  tastes like a field of wild roses, condensed. Its yellow, mealy flesh can be eaten raw or cooked, and its creamy-white flowers can be candied to eat or cut to decorate.

Native to East Indies and Malaya, the Rose Apple, also known as the plum rose, malabar plum or poma rosa, tastes best when picked crisp and eaten immediately. You can prune the tree into a dense hedgerow or a tasty living fencepost, as the Guatamalans do, or let the Rose Apple stretch its canopy and reach its 40 ft. potential.  You choose how you’d like to see the Rose Apple take shape! It’s easy-on-the-eyes, no matter what shape or size.

    This is a fruit tree I’ve known form when growing up in Jamaica, the flavor is amazing fresh and sweet. Hoping the tree will bear fruit that will mimic the taste

    Loved and cared for plant upon arrival, it came healthy and beautiful, now I’m just sad as rainy season rotted the roots and now plant is dying. Multiple attempts to contact shipper for care details failed as no response was received

    Great products

    I love this nursery. I live in California and the trees and other plants are shipped safely and arrive in excellent condition. I love the website too. I spend hours deciding on my next plant purchase. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
