White bush apple, Syzygium eucalyptiodes bleeseri

The white bush apple, Syzygium eucalyptiodes bleeseri (family Myrtaceae), is a small fruit tree closely related to the white apple, Syzygium eucalyptiodes eucalyptoides. It differs from it in having oval or roundish rather than the thin leaves of S. e. eucalyptoides. Both have white or cream flowers with numerous stamens.

Both of these species also have a white edible fruit. For more information on plant food and the traditional subsistence of Aboriginal people in central Cape York Peninsula, see the Edible plant products page.
