Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

One off my bucket list, we visited the Narangba Nursery which is run by a young couple and they are doing a good job.  They have their own tissue culture bananas and quite a few exotic and native plants on hand. This Syzygium is known as the rose apple, a bright red watery fruit which is mostly seedless.  

The tree has been thoroughly researched for it's medicinal qualities,  maybe this is why the islander people love to have this tree.

Fabulous, I look forward to tasting the fruit.

Have you tasted these Christa? My fav is Syzygium jambos (rose apple) yellow fruit with a pleasant rose water taste.  

No Doug, and it looks like I won't as the plant died while we were away for a week at North Coast.  The one you speak of is hard to get hold of.  I will keep my eye out for it.
