Starfruit

Image: 1 My pencil sketch of a starfruit

Shaped like one as named
Starfruit star shaped thou so  blessed
One so succulent

Crunchy and so sweet
Taken raw or plain juicing
Vitamin C rich

High water content
To quench the thirst so ideal
Enticing health-wise

Is good for the heart
Not seasonal  by  nature
Seen throughout the year

    1. Try it Brian! It tastes like pear and more water laden. Maybe more like water-melon in water content.

    1. Cosmos,
      It is just another fruit like apples and pears. It's ok!

  8. I like them, and I've seen them in our stores, but I just wish I could tell when they're ripe.

  9. Kay,
    You are right. An unripe one is sourish. But those in shops are bound to be ripe.

    1. Tastes a little like kiwi, Mary! Only the skin and texture are somewhat different!
