Rosa Apple

Rosa apple is a bell shaped fruit, which is cultivated in many tropic areas; such as Thailand, India, Malaysia and Philippines. Due to its glossy and smooth skin texture, it is also called “wax apple”. Rosa apple is 2 to 4 inches in length; its flesh is white and contains a few seeds in the core. The color of the fruit ranges from white or pale green, to red or dark purple. The rosa apple that we can normally find in Canada is red in color, which is a species imported from Thailand.

Nutritional Facts

It is found to be exceptionally beneficial to people who have diabetes, piles, diarrhea, and liver problems. Rosa apple can act as a block against the conversion of starch into sugar in human’s pancreas; and its seeds can also help to reduce sugar in urine.
