    Beautiful pictures! And I love starfruits, they’re so refreshing and their juice is great for soothing sore throats.

  3. Looks as though they resemble an orange in texture o the inside. wouldn’t have guessed as they look melony or gourd like on the outside. Thanks for posting these. Happy WW

    The texture of the starfruit – at least, the ones I’ve had – is closer to an apple, Chinese apple pear, or jumbu fruit, but less dense. Its flavour is somewhat sour and reminiscent of like a crabapple or Chinese apple pear.

    I think it’s the lighting and angle that makes it resemble an orange in texture. 🙂
