Jambu, or wax apple, are oblong and bell-shaped with a bulbous, blossom end that slightly puckers in the center. The smooth skin ranges from purple, red, to pale green and has slight ribbing and a light sheen resembling a wax coating. These apples are slightly crunchy and juicy with a light, sweet flavor similar to an Asian pear.
Also known as water apples, wax apples, rose apples, wax jambus, lianwu in Chinese, chomphu in Thailand, and jamalac in French, Thai wax apples are predominately found in Asia and are a popular backyard tree. A mature tree can produce up to seven hundred pounds of fruit in a single crop, and Thai wax apples are typically consumed fresh as a juicy snack.
Jambu have been found to contain oleanolic acid which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties
