Some varieties have white or pink skin.Other names: Mountain Apple, Otaheite Apple, Pommerac General Information: Malay Apple (Syzygium malaccense, Family Myrtaceae) is because of its resemblance to the cashew apple, the pseudo fruit or swollen fruit-stalk of the cashew nut. It is a fruit , as well as many Caribbean countries such as Trinidad and Tobago. A delight to the eye in every respect, the Malay apple is much admired for the beauty of the tree, its flowers and its colorful, glistening fruits, without parallel. The fruit is oblong-shaped and dark red in color, although some varieties have white or pink skin. The flesh is white and surrounds a large seed. The fruit can be a delicate waxy pinkish white or a deep red. Very juicy when ripe. The blooms (and fruit) grow directly attached to the branches of the tree. Not usually seen as a “value added food product” but commonly eaten out of hand. The mountain apple is a very refreshing fruit with an aromatic, pleasant taste. Known as Ohia apples by the Hawaiians, the handsome trees originally came from Malaysia and traveled throughout the Pacific in early Polynesian times. This is one of the few fruit trees that can grow in sun or semi shaded areas with some wind protection. Malay Apples are called Mountain Apples in Hawaii and grow quite profusely here. Not unusual to see them in many backyards. Delicious fruit when ripe. One mature tree can bear 50-100 lbs of fruit. In Hawaii most folks call the Malay Apple “Mountain Apple”. In rainforest settings in Hawaii, Mountain Apple will grow to 50 feet if in competition with other trees. Individual trees planted in open settings grow to half that height. Flowers are spectacular, multiple stamens and a bright rosy pink. The rosy stamens litter the forest floor beneath the trees, making these trees easy to find even if you cannot see the flowering canopy itself in dense forest.

Late or Multiple PayPal payments are NOT eligible for any discount. We will ship once a week – ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings to you.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the discount (i.e.: additional items) My stores’ combined shipping is built in for same items rather than a varied selection. Domestic S/H includes postage, USDA certification and inspection, proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can’t really change any of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount much as each different species requires it’s own prep, packing, then at USDA each has to be unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires us to clean and prepare every last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. This requirement takes my wife and I, 2-3 days to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand. Before you purchase After you Receive your Items. LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE. There is the risk when you grow plants that they may die. LIVE PLANTS are PERISHABLE, guaranteed not to live forever. US orders ONLY are GUARANTEED LIVE ARRIVAL. All International orders are shipped at the BUYER’s RISK! When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it. It is your responsibility to know how to care for the plant. Do some research before they arrive or seek experienced help. Small plants need protection from many things, wind, sun, dry-out. They do well just in the garage or living room. They need good light but not sunlight (full sun will burn small plants). Small pots dry-out easily. Just sitting in a shallow tray of water works well. The idea is to keep the plants from dehydrating. Be careful if you decide to re-pot. Re-potting voids any warranty. Plants are easily damaged with new/different mix. Use NO fertilizers (this may kill your plants). Proper care is critical upon arrival. Live Plants are NOT GUARANTEED to survive under your care. DO NOT expect any live plant to be GUARANTEED to remain alive. Plants are NOT GUARANTEED TO SURVIVE after you begin Care! Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to you. NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT. IF YOU are NOT able to provide PROPER CARE, PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT plant to be GUARANTEED after it perishes. BROWN THUMB WARNING: Please Do NOT email me after a week after receiving and repotting your plant, and make a claim it arrived damaged. All photo support must be as arrived in original condition when received (in the box and packed as delivered). If you repot your plant after delivery, all warranties are voided and no replacement is offered. You should use good gardening skills and repot if desired but at buyer’s risk and expense. If repotted, you are responsible for the condition of the plant. NO REPLACEMENT or REFUND WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT. Not every plant that I grow survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there is no way to know what kind of conditions it will endure in the trip to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered to your door. You are agreeing to these terms when you make this purchase from this listing. eBay Return Policy If you need to return an item, be sure to follow these item condition guidelines.

Once planted, seeds can NOT be returned and no refund is offered. All seed sales are final. There are no germination guarantees. Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised. Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at seller’s expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements, refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller. Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These factors are totally out of the seller’s control and are the buyer’s responsibility and risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform properly regardless of conditions or the buyer’s methods or mistakes.. Ma ha lo & A l o h a ! !
