Eugenia Jambosa is a tree originating in Southeast Asia and occurring widely elsewhere, having been introduced as an ornamental and fruit tree.
Rich in vitamin C, the fruit can be eaten raw or used in various regional recipes. In South-East Asian countries, rose apple fruit is frequently served with spiced sugar.
The wood is dense and accordingly is used as a source of charcoal.
The tree is variously rich in tannins that are of some antimicrobial interest. Some parts of the tree are used in regional traditional medicine.
Helps with controlling smoke cravings.
