I once made an excellent jelly from the related Syzygium paniculatum (Eugenia myrtifolia) trees in the garden. The berries were not over 1/2 inch in diameter. I think this is called Lilly Pilly in Australia.

I have found many common names around the world refer to very different plants, which creates confusion.

I do not know Syzygium paniculatum but this Myrtaceae family is so large!
Yes, confusion is a rather common thing...
