JAMBU AIR (Syngium aqueum) under Myrtaceae family are one of the most popular local fruits in Malaysia. About 260 hectare of Jambu Air was grown in Malaysia in 2011 with Johor and Perak are the concentrated planted area. A few varieties of Jambu Air (Less than 5 varieties) was indicated by few farmers in both States as commercial varieties. Below are some photo's of Jambu Air Johor that I visited to explore the morphological and their potential for other farmers to grow.
