Not many trees get as festooned with flowers and fruit as these.

Has clusters of red fruit about golf ball size that look like small red malay apples. The taste like sour apple.

Hey Mike, how big (high) do these have to get to start to fruit?  I've got a couple (thanks to you!) planted out and the larger is maybe 10'.  I found one of these seedlings to be totally unaffected by our eugenia blight here but the other was set back severely by it for a bit but has recovered  somewhat (it doesn't affect all Myrtaceae but the local rose apples here all have severe cases and cedar bay cherries seem to be hard hit as well).

I would only be guessing but 5 years or less should be enough. Syzygiums are badly affected by the blight unfortunately.
