Commodity: Malay Apple
This crispy, pear-shaped fruit -- which ranges from 2-4 inches long -- has a mild, sweet flavor. The rosy-red skin is smooth and its flesh is white and crisp. While the apples can be eaten raw, their bland flavor is better if cooked with stronger flavors, like cloves. They are good for making into jellies, jams and sauces. Malay apples are native to Malaysia, but are available from Florida.
