Rose apple (Sizigium yamboz, Malabar plum, Chompu, Chmphū̀, Rose apple, Chom-poo). It is actively grown in the region of its origin – in the countries of Southeast Asia, especially a lot in Thailand.
It doesn’t look like an apple in shape at all, but rather looks like a pear or a bell. The color of the fruit can be red (most often), pale pink or light green. The peel is thin, juicy pulp and several small seeds are inside, so you can eat the chompa whole (do not forget to thoroughly wash all the fruits!).
The taste of crisp pulp cannot be called expressive and memorable, which is why the fruit is not very popular among tourists. Distantly, the aroma and taste of the chompu resembles a rose (but, for example, I didn’t catch it at all), but, in my opinion, the Rose apple looks more like an apple. So do not expect extravaganza of tastes from the chompu, but with its help you can perfectly quench your thirst.
