Rose Apples – Jambu (Water Apple / Bell Fruit) Sri Lankan Fruits

Rose Apples or Jambus, also called Water Apple and Bell Fruit. It is also known by different other names such as Water Apple, Jamaican Apple, Wax Jambu and Bell Fruit. This crunchy fruit has a light flavour of moderate sweet and slightly sour. The taste is very mild with a hint of rose water.

A Rose Apple tree grows in heavy rainfall regions and is average in height. Some people consider it is an ornamental tree and use its wood for making tools. Its tree gives amazing health benefits to numerous health conditions.

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.
