Fun Fact: The Star Apple is related and a part of the Sapote family.
Star Apple (Chrysophyllum cainito), also known as Caimito or Milk Fruit and 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. Refer to our SEASONAL GUIDE

If you do not plan to consume it immediately it is recommended that it is put in the refrigerator. The seeds are not edible.
