Gambling is legal in Macau, but not in mainland China or HK, so you can imagine how that works out. Tourism from mainland China to Macau is big business. Mega casinos everywhere!
There are all kinds of new fruits in Hong Kong, including these wax apples. Wax apples do not taste like apples – they’re juicy like watermelons. So delicious!
The official name of wax apples is Syzygium samarangense
In Taiwan and China, wax apples are known as lianwu (simplified Chinese: 莲雾; traditional Chinese: 蓮霧; pinyin: lián wù). Other names include love apple, java apple, bellfruit. water apple, mountain apple and rose apple.
These wax apples were red like typical apples but I read that some have colors ranging from white, pale green, green, red, purple, to deep purple or even black. The reddest fruits are the sweetest.
