Mountain Apple (Syzygium malaccense) Seed
This listing is for ONE (1) Mountain Apple (Syzygium malaccense) SEED. Also known as Malay Apple. We ship your freshly collected from the fruit SEED in damp paper toweling sealed in a plastic baggie. You can observe your seed germinate in the baggie that it arrives in and then go ahead and plant in a container of good potting soil. Please keep evenly watered and between 75-85 degrees at all times.
THIS SEED IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A MARBLE. IT WILL APPEAR TO CRACK IN TWO PIECES AS IT GERMINATES. THIS IS NORMAL. IT WILL GROW A ROOT + LEAVES AS IT GROWS. COVER WITH GOOD POTTING SOIL CAREFULLY ONCE YOU OBSERVE IT GERMINATE.
We love the bright pink 'paint brush' type flower blossoms created by this tree. They blossoms eventually form into delicate small pear shaped 'Mountain Apples'. Each fruit usually has one seed inside. All of the trees shown are grown from seed on our Haiku, Maui 2 acre Family Farm.
Grow your own Maui Mountain Apple tree from a seed. This tropical plant is also known as Ohi'a 'ai, and is considered a Hawaiian 'Canoe Plant'. Please google more about this fascinating term. There are 27 other useful 'Hawaiian Canoe Plants' that helped early voyaging Polynesians sustain life in their new environment. These 27 plants were their supermarket, hardware store and pharmacy.
Please note that we do not offer written growing instructions with or after you receive your viable seed safely. Please plan on reading up on/researching how to grow this plant in your specific area.
