A yellow fruit with crisp flesh and a large hollow cavity containing a single seed. The fruit has a strong fragrance reminiscent of rose water. The trees tend to grow in shaded valleys and close to rivers.
After you eat three rose apple you never want to see another one as long as you live. Dem cliding.

Fully ripe, it strongly sweet, but pleasantly aromatic. Eaten when it is half-ripe, the taste reminds me of an almost ripe Guava. Wish my American children could have had some, so that they could fully appreciate, "where my navel string bury."
