Default Wax Jambu 'Srinark Red'

Here's the harvest from my Wax Jambu 'Srinark Red'



















They taste like a Rose hinted apple, but not sweet and almost tart. Yum!

Looks like a cross between a fig and an apple. Neat pics, thanks Jarred! From the title of this post, I though you were making something up, lol. Never even heard of it.

Yes, it's not very popular!

It has the consistency of an apple, real crisp and crunchy, and no seeds.

If anybody has any good recipes or preparation methods for the Wax Jambu, please let me know!

Here's pictures from back in May, around when the flowers first appeared









The flowers are pretty wild!

This was my first year growing this plant, so I didn't know what to expect.
The flowers were pretty fragrant and look awesome, I remember saying that even if it doesn't bear much edible friut, the flowers are worth it!

I just ate a handful of the fruits, they're good!

And yes, she did! But they were just a stop on the route, she has to keep moving and stay busy.

congrats Jarred,
the fruits looks great, sounds crisp and subtle, nice and refreshing. Have you tried one from the fridge yet? Probably the best protected wax jambu tree on the planet.

thanks for the pics,

Thanks for the kind words you guys!

I have some in the fridge now, it's a good idea.

And, about the puppies, we wont be having any as she's already been spayed. But thank you for the compliment! It's nice to hear she's loved by others!

Nice pictures Jarred - always wondered what they were called. Here they call them huacas (or something like that) and they come in 2 sizes. The small ones that you see schoolchildren scrumping on their way home, and a much larger very dark red fruit. You can juice them for a refreshing drink, or poach them in ginger syrup like pears - in fact any cooking pear recipe would probably be nice. Your tree has fruited very well for such a small size.

Thanks for the kind words Richard, and thank you very much for that info, Carol.

I thought about juicing them... didn't do it because they're not extremely sweet. But maybe I'll give it a whirl and sweeten them up, or see if I can come up with some concoction. Cooking them like a pear sounds good too..

O.K., next year I've got to have one of these plants! Jarred, will you have any that could be purchased through RareBananas.com, or perhaps you could suggest another source?

Thanks!

Richard, unfortunately this tree did not transplant well and perished during my recent move. I'm really happy to see the thread get bumped, I enjoy looking at these photographs now. Glad I had taken them! This tree was a real treat, between the flowers, the aromas, the texture, the flavor, the bounty... everything was a great experience to grow this plant.
If you find yourself asking around for the plant, also mention "pearitas" like pearitas, (or "peritas") as I have heard it loosely referenced as such in Spanish.
Pine Island Nursery shows it on their website:
Tropical fruit trees, akee, all spice, ambarella, annona, avocado, cherry, bay leaf, black pepper, caimito, canistel, carambola, cashew, coconut, coffee, curry leaf, grumichama, guava, jaboticaba, jakfruit, longan, loquat, lychee, macadamia, malay ap

Wow, that is an expensive fruit. There is only one on ebay and they want 52.98 with shipping. I might have to pick one of these up soon.

The red wax jambu is a near-tropic plant, so I wouldn't plant it outdoors in zone 9b until late spring, and then in a place that is protected but where cold air drains away. Roger Meyer describes it as a plant that is very sensitive in zone 10.

Hi Jarred, I would like to add my two bits here. There are a couple of varieties grown here and they aren't really cheap due to their scarcity. You can get them in green or red(ripen fruits). Now..here's what's interesting...some guy in Thailand has come up with the Variegated form! Very nice! I will get the pix in soon.

Default Re: Wax Jambu 'Srinark Red'

are you all familiar with toptropicals.com. they are in ppunta gorda florida and sel and ship tropical plants.owned by a semi young russian couple, ive dealt with them for a few years. here is what they have to say
Varieties: Red, Pink, White, Green. Season: Summer. Usually short crooked trunk branching close to the ground. Leaves to 10, leathery, pointed, light green above, yellowish green below. Flowers slightly fragrant, attractive, in clusters, may be hidden under foliage. Fruit is thin-skinned, shiny, pear shaped with long neck. Flesh is white or pink, mildly fragrant, dry to juicy, and sweet. Often seedless. Usually eaten fresh mainly as a thirst quencher and in salads. Has a cooling effect which makes it useful as a summertime fruit - like a cucumber.In Malaya, the greenish fruits are eaten raw with salt or may be cooked as a sauce. They are also stewed with true apples. The pink fruits are juicier and more flavorful and suitable for eating out-of-hand or cooking without accompaniments except sugar. Propagation: By seed, air-layering, grafting or budding. The trees grow spontaneously from seed. The Java apple is a heavy bearer on good soil. When 5 years old it may yield a crop of 700 fruits.Needs adequate rainfall, some humidity and fertile soil for best growth. Wax jambu's are ultra-tropical and will not survive in areas that receive frost. If planted in orchards, the trees are spaced 26 to 32 ft (8-10 m) apart and are given a minimum of attention.
