Taiwan: The fruits of Taiwan (Wax Jambu / Jambu Air / Java Apple)

Wax Apple is a tropical tree growing to 12m tall. When ripe, the fruit puff outwards, with a slight concavity in the middle of the underside of the "bell". Despite its name, wax apple does not taste like an apple, and it has neither the fragrance nor the density of an apple. Its flavor is similar to a snow pear. Its flesh has a very loose weave. The color of its juice depends on the cultivar; it may be purple to entirely colorless.
