Rose apple tree

Pictured here is a rose apple tree. Rose apples, called chompuu [ชมพู่] in Thai, are very common when in season around here. A tasty fruit, they are very juicy with a firm flesh, but not too sweet. I have never seen them in the US. Supposedly it grows quite easily and is almost considered a weed.  It is located on most continents and even grown in Florida, so I’m not sure why people in America aren’t eating these? They sure are missing out!
