Syzygium Malaccense

That's a mouthful, isn't it? Where sapiens come up with these ridiculous names is beyond me! The more common name you'll hear regarding this particular item is: "Malay Apple." But, even then, it is still not a very common item you will see at your local grocery market in the USA.

Without further ado...

Here are these interesting-looking fruit native to Southeast Asia. They look like red bell peppers, don't they?

Five for me, none for you!

Inside, there is a cottony texture with a very mellow, sweet and sour taste of a rose petal. How do I know what rose petals taste like? Well, I eat grass from time-to-time, so a rose petal is not far off from that! Delicious!

The innards
Thank you to my dear friends for shipping this fruit from exotic lands! I'm sure these are not tested for the safety of canines, but my sapiens are guilty of sharing a bite with me!
