I've never seen Mountain Apples in the stores. I frequently see the trees on properties I inspect but I don't know anyone with a tree so I've never tasted them. You've made me want to track some down! Maybe I'll ask the realtor handling the next home I inspect that has one. :0)

Visiting late for the Carnival of Aloha!

We have a white mountain apple tree in our back yard.. right now (aug) the tree is LOADED. Hence the reason I am online looking for things to do with them as they are everywhere right now.
I know of two moutain apples the white and my favorite the red.. oh so yummy. I had never heard of it until I moved to Hawaii, but am so lucky to have a tree in my yard.
Vistor of Carnival if your driving by someones home which has a fruit you would like to try this is how you do it. Walk up or call out to the owners of the home. (If no one comes out of replies LEAVE sorry no fruit for you!! lol)When they open their door tell them "aloha" and tell them about "hearing bout (which ever fruit you are asking about) and then ask them if it would be alright if you picked one". Local style with you going and "asking" be ready for the people in the house to go and get a plastic bag and a pole if needed and help you pick a bag full. Most people in Hawaii and everywhere else I am sure love to share.. ever heard about "omiyage"? lol But want to be asked not like some people who just "TAKE"... some shame.
I so hope you get to try some soon!
Try wait..
Why I am here.. does anyone know of things I can do with these mountain apples? Mahalos

I've heard of pickled mountain apples but have never had them. I assume that you would need to select the fruit that are green or half ripe otherwise you'd have "mush". For those who are not familiar with the fruit ... it is so fragile that you literally have to enjoy them just off the tree. By the next day, the fruit does not taste as good or will start to spoil. If anyone has a picked mountain apple recipe, please share. We plant to pick some tomorrow and I'll pick a few green ones and try my pickled mango recipe with it.

I just bought our first white mounatin apple tree to plant and am looking forward to its fruit. Can anyone describe the difference in flavor between the white and red varieties? I think the red mountain apples taste like roses.

Mmmm, we have the white variety and I haven't had the red for years. I think the red variety is more perfume like, and a stronger taste maybe?

Any one know how I can get some seeds for the mountain apple tree? I like try grow some in Northern California.

When I was a little girl (long, long time ago!) I remember mountain apples in the Kahana Valley on Oahu. Still there? I hope so.

How do you germinate the seed? I heard several different methods. Do you dry the seed first or just put it in water?LOL
