Syzygium samarangense (Myrtaceae) 

 

Syzygium samarangense, the wax jambu, is a productive tropical fruit tree in the guava family (Myrtaceae).  The fruits are pear to bell shaped, about 2 inches in diameter, and may be red, pink, white, green or brown, with a snow white, juicy pulp.  Some types are a little watery or spongy, but others are quite sweet, juicy and flavorful, especially when tree ripened.
