          Makiang”, in Thai, (Syzygiumnervosum DC. var. Paniala(Roxb) or Cleistocalyxnervosum var. paniala) is a local perennial plant normally found in forests in the northern region of Thailand. Though Makiang is in Myrtaceae Family like Whakhao (Cleistocalyxnervosum var. Nervosum), it consists of only three small flowers per each inflorescence, less in number but larger in size when compared to flowers of Whakhao. Makiang fruits have sour and sweet taste. The fruits are usually consumed fresh or used as an ingredient in Tom Yum, Thai popular spicy soup. However, as Makiang is quickly rotten once ripen, people tend to process it to fruit juice, wine, jam, preserved fruits, etc.
