  1. Hi everyone, This time I actually searched and there's nothing about rose apples on the ARCR forums. A neighbor raved about them, then we couldn't find them, then this last week, the local (San Ramon) feria had them. It's one of those foods I suspect you either love or hate, and I'm with my neighbor on this one. My reaction was, "where have you been all of my life?" The fruit I'm talking about is not what's often called "water apples." I've had them and have no doubt whatsoever that they're refreshing, but they don't really have much flavor, other than being crisp and refreshing. Rose apples are completely different! Sweet, strongly perfumed with a rose scent, large hollow cavity with a fairly large seed, one neighbor said that they taste like you're eating perfume. The internet source I found says that people make a sort of jam out of them, which I cannot imagine, as they're really quite sweet to start with. But I'd love to hear what others think and maybe introduce this tropical fruit (from India originally) and urge people to try it. The link to info from Purdue University is below: http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/rose_apple.html regards, Gayle
