Makopa is the Filipino word which means "Rose apple", sometimes also called in English as mountain apple. It is a red , bell-shaped tropical fruit which is eaten as soon as the color of the skin turn into deep red.

In the Philippines, it is said to be a lucky tree and must be planted infront of the house, and so I did. Now that I am living in Germany, I will never ever see Makopa. The last time I saw this fruit was during my travel to Bangkok, Thailand and visited one of the country's famous Floating Markets. In Thailand, Rose apples are much sweeter, jucier and bigger than what we have in the Philippines.
