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.
