The shape Jambu reminds me of a bulb with very thin skin. When it fully ripens the skin turns from light green with a tinge of pink into an attractive rich red colour. The flesh of the fruit stays white.

They are juicy and perfect to quench the thirst on a hot day. It can be eaten raw like an apple or can be used in different food preparations like jams, jellies and other desserts.

The fruit is popular in Sri Lanka during the summer season and it’s often seen grown in home gardens.
