Makopa (Java Apple)

Syzygium samarangense

Description:

I wonder. Didn't do much to investigate since we were in a hurry. I'm thinking along the lines of Myrtaceae because of the inframarginal veins (albeit no flaky bark on this one), and 'cause the shape of the fruit looks like Syzygium samarangense (Java apple, or Makopa). EDIT: ID'ed. Thanks Mr. Ileto!

Habitat:

Found as an ornamental in a zoo.

Most probably a Makopa, I grew up with one outside my window.
