Wax or Rose Apple Tree

This tree had a combination of bud, blossoms, and fruit.  Liem boo or Lien Woo was one of my first delighted discoveries in Taiwan.

The flowers remind me of sea anemone with their outstretched stamens.

Not quite red enough yet to be fully sweet.

The whole tree sits next to a basketball court where people were playing in their bare feet.

      Sorry, just caught your comment, Clarence. You might have to go visit Taiwan and eat one in order to find a seed for it. Otherwise maybe there are nurseries in Hawaii that could help you with tropical fruits?

    What conditions are best for this fruit tree? Full Sun? Part Sun? Acidic soil? We want to plant one in Grenada in the best place possible. Thank you@
