Rose Apple is a fruit that grows in the tropics and also in Asia. It is a short tree and the fruit has a rose like taste and smell, the fruit is oval shaped and pinkish and is now being seen in US markets and around the world. One of the biggest health benefits to the Rose Apple is the ability of the fruit to block the conversion of starch to sugar, which is a great benefit to diabetics. And it also helps with diarrhea and liver problems. We have them here in Puerto Rico by the name Pomarosa.
