Rose apple (Syzygium jambos) is a popular fruit native to Southeast Asia. The blossoms contain hundreds of stamens and the fruits are crisp, juicy with distinct rose scent. The fruits are palatable with a moderate sweet taste. Rose apple contains low fibre level, appreciable level of vitamin C, some level of acid, protein and ash content. In-situ characterization and preliminary evaluation are performed following Biodiversity International Tropical Fruit Descriptor. Total 6 numbers of accessions were taken under the study, the tree age varied from 18yrs to above 20yrs. Height and trunk girth varied from 8m to above 12m and 124.00 cm to 205.00 cm in studied accessions. Leaf characters in rose apple reveals lanceolate leaf blade shape, narrowly acuminate leaf apex, cuneate leaf base, opposite leaf orientation and arcuate leaf venation. Length of the leaf blade ranges from 19.21 cm to 25.04 cm and breadth varies from 4.08 cm to 6.54 cm. Maximum fruit weight (27.36 g), seed weight (12.11 g) in ACC-3 and maximum number of seeds (2.4) in ACC-4 and ACC-3 were recorded. TSS ranged from 5.08° Brix (ACC-4) to 6.08° Brix (ACC-2). Average linkage technique clustering when applied on squared Euclidean distance matrix a total of 4 clusters were formed for plant physical parameters, fruit physical parameters and for fruit biochemical parameters.
