Star Apple (Chrysophyllum cainito), also known as Caimito or Milk Fruit is a highly sought after delicacy originating in the West Indies and Central America. We source our star apple locally from many farms. The firm skinned, apple shaped fruit ranges from white, green to purple and gets its name from the star shaped core when cut horizontally. The texture of the flesh surrounding the inedible seeds is soft and milky.
This fruit is a rich source of Vitamin C, B3, Iron and is great for the digestive system. Star Apple has a very short season in the winter.
Fun Fact: The star apple is related and a part of the Sapote family.

Star Apple is picked ripe, when you receive it it is ready to eat. Cut it open and scoop out the milky inside with a spoon when ready to eat, the purple/green skin is not consumed. If you do not plan to consume it immediately it is recommended that it is put in the refrigerator. The seeds are not edible.
Once the fruit has arrived, in the case that there are any damages to the fruit or the fruit is inedible, please notify us within 24 hours via email with a picture of the fruit firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to perishability of tropical fruit we are not able to refund after the 24 hour period.
Please bear with us due to the pandemic our response times are slightly exaggerated. We are doing our best to respond to each email as quickly as possible. We aim to provide the best quality of fruit and service to our customers. Thank you for your support.
Tropical Fruit ripens best in warm temperatures. If you have received fruit that has not ripened and you wish to speed up the ripening process, we recommend to either put your fruit in paper bags or wrapped in a kitchen towel and placed in a dry, warm area. Alternatively, you may also place your fruit outside in the sun (in an area mindful of bugs) which will also speed up the ripening process.
