Wax Jambu

The wax jambu, syzuguum samanarangense, is a pear or bell shaped ultra tropical fruit.  It is native to the Malay Archipelago. (South East Asian chain of islands). Wax jambus are in season from April to June.

            The wax jambu can range in size from 1/4” to 2-1/2” long.  They have waxy and crisp skin.  They are pear shaped with a squat bottom.  The color is ranges from pink to red. The flesh inside is white, and very juicy.  The wax jambu is often eaten with salt sprinkled on it- just as you would a regular apple.

        The wax jambu tree is an evergreen with dark green leaves that can grown very tall.  Wax jambus grow in clusters.  It is related to the Malay apple.  The wax jambu is sometimes called a java apple, or a water apple.
