Tambis Tree

Tambis (Syzygium aqueum (Burm.f.) Alston)

Tambis is an evergreen tree, with a small crown that usually grows 6 to 10 meters tall.

They can be found in fairly moist tropical lowlands, and is usually cultivated for its wood and edible fruit.

Often confused with the Macopa, the fruit is a yellow or red bell-shaped berry, with a crunchy, crisp, and juicy flesh, which is commonly eaten raw, but can also be made into a syrup.

The wood is used for making musical instruments, tool handles, furniture components, ship-building, heavy carpentry, and flooring.
