Browsing around the swapmeet, couldn't get it out of my head after 1st seeing it. I even walked away a few times, trying to see if there was anything better. It's in a 7 gallon pot, about 5'10" tall, nice thick trunk (for its size), healthy large leaves.

Followed are 2 photos of another wax jambu (not Black Pearl) I saw on the way to the swapmeet.

They let me try a Black Pearl fruit from a smaller tree, nice fragrance, crunchy, pretty sweet. That fruit cost me $100, the tree was free

Wow Newgen,
that is a nice tree you picked up and an amazing tree in the ground. You should try to make them your new friends. :)

Wow...very nice looking tree and the wax apples look so good! I was going to ask did you pretend like you're taking a walk and pick some of those wax apples outside the fence...or break a branch so you can graft it on your tree....lol

I stumbled upon a video once that showed how they are growing wax jambu in some part of China. They discovered a way to encourage blooming/fruiting in the off season. They also pruned so that the fruit that formed were huge. They claimed that for all their hard work they got a different and stronger flavor.

All the fruit I've tasted were kinda bland.

Ethan: It's getting crowded in my backyard. I hope all the fruit trees I have can be nice to one another.

ch3rri: You wouldn't believe how many of those fruits just dropped on the sidewalk, people just stepped all over 'em. I was tempted to pick off some, but we were kinda in a hurry, I had to stop the car on the side of the road to get the photos. I think there's a law that if a neighbor's tree branch sticks out over a fence into your yard, you can do whatever you want to it. Here, these overhanging branches are outside of the owner's, so technically, they're "public" property.
