Also known as the: Elephant Apple, Chulta

Here is a very ornamental shrub or small tree that is highly prized for its large, handsome and fragrant flowers, as well as for its edible fruit. It is native to southeastern Asia, from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka east to southwestern China (Yunnan) and Vietnam, and south through Thailand to Malaysia and Indonesia.
It is an evergreen that can grow to 30 m tall, but in cultivation it will reach an average of 15 m.
The flowers are large, up to 5 inches across, with five ivory white petals and numerous yellow stamens which are very attractive to bees, butterflies and birds. The leaves are 15-36 cm long and are simply beautiful, with a conspicuously corrugated surface with impressed veins, much like ribbed potato chips. The large fruit weighing up to a couple of pounds are 7.5-10 cm in diameter. The fruit pulp is sour and used in Indian cuisine in curries, jam, and jellies. It is often mixed with coconut and spices to make chutneys.
