This is a tall tree in its native Brazil, but seems to only reach medium height here. It has attractive leaves that are red when new, and pretty white flowers. The fruit is crisp like an apple with a hint of rose flavour, smaller than an apple. It makes a delicious jam. A very good canopy plant in the subtropical orchard. The picture is of fruit just forming after the flowers have fallen.
