Syzygium jambos ?


i have never seen such narrow leaves on rose apple trees whether in India or in  the american tropics


Could be Syzygium occidentalis…..


This is a shrub and profusely grown along the bank slope of Sangu River. During the rainy season it can tolerate flood conditions


Syzygium jambos

To me looks different at first glance at

I could not find a match as per comparative images at Syzygium
What are the species reported from the area ?

Try Syzygium polypetalum (Wall.) Merr. & L.M.Perry
Thanks, …

To me leaves appear to be opposite in the links, which is not so in the posted image.


The leaves would be “ternate”, Sir, not opposite, vide “Bengal Plant, vol I, David Prain”

and “leaves tern, linear-lanceolar……. native of Chittagong…..”, vide “Flora Indica, vol II”

Yes, you appear to be right for Syzygium polypetalum as per GBIF.


Yes it is correct. Syzygium polypetalum
