Chrysophillum or Star Apple

Star apple fruits are round or oval up to 10 cm in diameter. The peel is thin, smooth from green to purple or brown, depending on the variety. Under the peel is a layer of peel of the same color as the peel itself. The pulp is white to violet, juicy, sweet, sticky, jelly-like, with an apple flavor. Inside, there are up to 10 solid solid brown bones, up to 2 cm long. In cross section, the flesh resembles a star. Unripe fruits – knit and inedible. The milky juice, which remains even in mature fruits, is very sticky, as a result, when the fruit is consumed, the lips may stick together a little.
