remember the macopa/wax jambu i wrote of in a previous post? i passed by a macopa tree a bit back, and thought you might like to see what the fruit look like in the wild. or behind a chinese restaurant in tumon. ha!
the flower of the Syzygium samarangense.
it takes about two months for the fruit to go from bud stage to ripened fruit, although
it seems to stay at this stage for a very, very long time.
the ones on island aren't as big and juicy as this, but are a pretty shade of cherry pink.
termites love the trees, so look out for nests. not that you could miss this one.
