There is a Hawaiian saying, “O Hinaia‘ele‘ele ka
malama, ‘aluka ka pala a ka ‘ohi‘a”, meaning Hinaia‘ele‘ele is the month when
the mountain apples ripen everywhere. Hinaia’eleele is the month that falls
during July or August, when the rains begin to return after the hot dry summer.
Another reference to this time is “Olelo Noeau, Pukui: Ka ua ho‘opala ‘ohi‘a”,
the rain that ripens the mountain apples. This refers to the rain that comes
just as the mountain apple is beginning to ripen.

General Information: Malay Apple (Syzygium malaccense, Family Myrtaceae) is
because of its resemblance to the cashew apple, the pseudo fruit or swollen
fruit-stalk of the cashew nut. It is a fruit , as well as many Caribbean
countries such as Trinidad and Tobago. A delight to the eye in every
respect, the Malay apple is much admired for the beauty of the tree, its
flowers and its colorful, glistening fruits, without parallel in the . The
fruit is oblong-shaped and dark red in color, although some varieties have
white or pink skin. The flesh is white and surrounds a large seed.
The fruit can be a delicate waxy pinkish white or a deep red. Very juicy
when ripe. The blooms (and fruit) grow directly attached to the branches of
the tree. Not usually seen as a "value added food product" but commonly
eaten out of hand.
The mountain apple is a very refreshing fruit with an aromatic, pleasant
taste. Known as Ohia apples by the Hawaiians, the handsome trees originally
came from Malaysia and traveled throughout the Pacific in early Polynesian
times. This is one of the few fruit trees that can grow in sun or semi
shaded areas with some wind protection.
Malay Apples are called Mountain Apples in Hawaii
and grow quite profusely here. Not unusual to see them in many backyards.
Delicious fruit when ripe. One mature tree can bear 50-100 lbs of fruit. In
Hawaii most folks call the Malay Apple "Mountain Apple". In rainforest
settings in Hawaii, Mountain Apple will grow to 50 feet if in competition
with other trees. Individual trees planted in open settings grow to half
that height. Flowers are spectacular, multiple stamens and a bright rosy
pink. The rosy stamens litter the forest floor beneath the trees, making
these trees easy to find even if you cannot see the flowering canopy itself
in dense forest.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I cant really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it gets hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep & packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.
