Watery Rose Apple, also known as Malabar plum sold on the hawkers carts in the city market lanes, this pear shaped fruit is native to Southeast Asia but is naturalized in India, and thus finds its way to local markets ...

i love those, they're the fruit equivalent of celery. I am used to them being pink or even red, is this greenish white skin the norm in India?

It reminds me of my summer vacations while in school. I used to climb up this tree @ my granny's place and eat them to my contents fill.. Nostalia hits when I stare at this picture.

YEs Amsec...I have seen only greeninsh white ones as well, these have a dash of pink, making it more appealing....taste remains the same however.

Thx

These are wax apples not malabar, malabar do come in pink and red the insides are softer and looks like cotton with a large pit/seed in the middle and the wax apple is a crunchy fruit, more like a crisp apple
