Introduction

Rose apples belong to the genus of Syzygium and are originated from Southeast Asia. The most common species of rose apple is Syzygium jambos which has been introduced in many areas both as a fruit and ornamental tree. Rose apples are very similar to guavas in appearance and many people unfamiliar with them may mistake them for a guava on sight. It can grow both in tropical and sub-tropical regions.

Rose apples are native in Southeast Asia but they have been gradually introduced widely on every continent except Antarctica. In certain regions they are now established as an invasive species such as parts of Australia, Hawaiian Islands, and Galapagos Islands.
