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.

A very beautiful fruit, usually deep red in color, pear shaped, with a waxy skin, about the size of an apple. Flesh is crunchy, often juicy, with a mild sweet flavor. Some varieties have white or pink skin.Other names: Mountain Apple, Otaheite Apple, Pommerac

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.

We ship via USPS Mondays-Wednesday with Delivery confirmation.

  All plant materials are required by LAW to inspected and certified by USDA prior to export Hawaii to the US Mainland.

 After Inspection, USDA stamps released for export Hawaii to the US Mainland. All items are delivered to USDA Inspection Station at Honolulu International airport.

Last and usually least is USPS postage (shipping).

            We accept online payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only acceptable for in-person payments and cash-on-delivery (COD). Cash payment can not be sent through the mail.

      Please only one Paypal payment. Multiple paypal payments are NOT eligible for discounts.

        We will ship once a week - ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings to you.  This can only be done at the Dept. of Agriculture.  If payments are not met before that MONDAY, your items will be shipped the following week and lose the combined discount opportunity.

         Non-paying bidders may receive negative feedback and will be reported as an unpaid item to eBay.


Payment must be received within 7 days of the auction ending. 


         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 can’t 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.


 Do NOT email me a week after potting your plant, and make a claim it arrived damaged. From delivery confirmation, you have only 48 hours from delivery confirmation to make any claim.


All claims need to be supported with Photos of the damaged plant(s) as packed/unpacked, the box if damaged, the packing materials and any documents. I am very reasonable and understanding, anything can happen to small plants in transit.

The expense to send it to you is most of your payment. To send any replacement (s), I try to piggy back with your next order.

Replacement is not an option for CUSTOMS SEIZURE.

my dog Taz will fetch your email to me
