Jambu Air or Rose Apple is a name applied to any group of fruits of this genus, but should only be known by the Indian/Malay name of "jambu". Jambu has a Sanskrit origin and is applied in Malaysia and Indonesia to several quite different fruits. In Malaysia, it generally means cultivated fruits as opposed to those in the wild, but it is most often used to refer to fruits from this particular genus. The same holds true in Indonesia, except that the word can refer to plants of other genera. For example, "jambu batu" (stone jambu) refers to the guava, while "jambu met" means the cashew fruit. Rose apples are indigenous to Southeast Asia or the Indian subcontinent. They do bear a superficial resemblance to apples but are quite different to eat.
Our Jambu Air is brought specially from Thailand. The delicious, tasty and also somewhat firm mushy on the inside fruits are bell-shaped, mild green, white, pink, or even red in color and mostly seedless. The fruits are nice with a mild sweet taste, juicy and crunchy white flesh. The Skin? The fruit has got the smooth and thin skin. Fun to eat!
