This is some Syzygium sp. (Myrtaceae Family). Its a huge tree may be around 20 m high.
Date/Time: 22-12-2010 / 09:45AM
Location: Near Lime Stone Cave site, Baratang, Andaman
Habitat: Wild
Plant habit: Tree (Approx. 20 m tall)


… has identified this as Syzygium samarangense (Blume) Merr. & L.M.Perry


I think it is Syzygium praecox (Roxb.) Rathakr. & N.C.Nair
Almost like S. samarangense but it is much taller and the bark is whitish grey. 


Not Syzygium jambos, because S jambos is a small tree no more than 5 m tall, no more than 15 cm diameter. The bark is not whitish.


… has rightly idenitified this tree as Syzygium samarangense which is a very common tree in the coastal forests of the Andaman Islands.


To me looks different from images at Syzygium samarangense (Blume) Merr. & L.M.Perry

I find these closer to … images at Syzygium polyanthum (Wight) Walp., which also have distribution in Andamans. 


Of course the flowers of Syzygium samarangense will be white. Thank you … for pointing out.
