Please excuse the poor photos as the light was fading. This is a tree I saw in Bangalore which I was told has edible fruit called Panneer Pazham. The flowers looked almost white,like powder-puffs,  in bunches of twos and threes, high up on the tree. The partially-eaten-by-squirrels fruit is shown.
Thanks,
Padmini Raghavan.

This could be Rose Apple (Syzygium jumbos), a common plant found in B'lore gardens.

Could be Syzygium jambos, from Myrtaceae, not jumbos, but for sure
could you show me the leaves please.
