Wax apple is one of the underutilized fruits that is considered a good source of fibres, vitamins minerals as well as antioxidants. In this study, a comparative analysis of the developments of wax fruit ripening at the proteomic and metabolomic level was reported. Two-dimensional electrophoresis coupled with MALDI-TOF/TOF was used to compare the proteome profile from three developmental stages named immature, young and mature fruits. In general, the protein expression profile, as well as the identified proteins function were discussed for their potential role fruit physiological developmental and ripening processes. The metabolomic investigation was also performed on the same samples using quadrupole liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-QTOF/MS). The role of some of the differentially expressed proteins and metabolites is discussed in relation to wax apple fruit ripening during development. This is the first study investigating the changes in the protein and metabolite in wax apple in different developmental stages. The information obtained from this research will be helpful in developing biomarkers for breeders and help the plant researchers to avoid wax apple cultivation problems such as fruit cracking.

A plant genus in the family MYRTACEAE, order Myrtales, subclass Rosidae. It is best known for cloves, which is the flower bud that is the source of an oil rich in EUGENOL. The botanical name has varied: Syzygium aromaticum (L.) Merr. & L. M. Perry = Eugenia caryophyllata Thunb. = Caryophyllus aromaticus L. The Eugenia-Syzygium name is discussed in Amer. J.
