There’s a market by our shop that supports local farmers and/or growers. Mom loves going there and checks out local vegetables and tropical fruits that is not known in the mainland.
Today she brought me to taste Star Apple.
A Star Apple is the same size as an average apple.
There are 2 kinds of Star Apple:
1) light green skin and
2) deep purple skin.
Mom brought some deep purple skin Star Apple.
It is called Star Apple from the STAR pattern you can see from slicing it in half.
Mom sliced it 2 ways … on 2 of them you can vaguely see the point of a star. See it?
The skin of Star Apple is not edible.
Star Apple taste like a custard and apple.
Star Apple is supposed to be a good fruit for making sorbet.
Mom says she will make it soon.

Star apples sound (and look) delicious! You’re luck you’ve got access to them.
Sugar! We just love seeing your super happy SMILING Golden Face!!! We can just tell that you love that Star Fruit!! Looks yummy!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
Those star apples sound yummy!
Hey Sugar, Jet here.
Star apple? Yummy and beautiful… On our side of paradise, we have canistel or star fruit! They have a funny shape, however, when you slice them, the look like stars!
Poor Sugar, living in Hawaii, eating custard-apple flavored fruit. Will the suffering never end! 🙂
Sugar Hawaii really is good to you.
Frankie Furter and Ernie says
Aloha Sugar. I have never seen or heard of Star Apples before. I do know that Regular apples have a star inside when you cut them in half Cross Wise… Butt they don’t taste like Custard though, of course.
Thanks for showing and telling us about these.
Lydia @ See Beautiful says
Sugar, that’s precious! Your tasty lip-smacking picture was obviously my favorite!
Happy seeing beautiful, friend!
Sugar, that really looks yummy and you look like you are enjoying yourself!!

Madi and Mom says
Yummy Sugar…MOL now I know why you moved to Hawaii…just to try all the most delish foods!!
Mom thought the apple looked like a plum w/o the star. Hawaii not only has pretty food it is tasty too.

Star apples sound interesting. They sure don’t look like apples once they’re cut open. Must be nice to experience some different kinds of fruit, though.
Star apples sound very good and they are the perfect food for you Sugar since you are a star 🙂
Benny & Lily says
oh Sugar that looks like the tastiest thing we have ever seen

Oh Man! Now that just sounds wonderful! By the way the mamas got back to us on the island they went to Kauai. They were telling us all about all the local and tasty things they ate! Boy we are jealous maybe next time mamas can take us too! And we can stop by and say hi! ~Weinerful Gang~
That last picture said it all: YUMMY!!
Very unique “apple”, but I could see the star pattern!
Thank you for today’s lesson on exotic fruits there in Paradise!
Cyber Belly Rubs to you, Sugar
How yummy…apple and custard all in that fruit! I will have to look for those around here, because the gelato with star apple sounds devine!
Those look yummy
Stop on by for a visit
You’re on such an exciting adventure! It would be cool to have exotic foods to try.
Elyse and Riley says
Sugar!!! Hi! What a yummy looking Star Apple. Wish we could get some cool exotic fruits around here. The most exotic we can get is mango, star fruit, etc. Glad you’re enjoying Hawaii…it looks so beautiful! How are your allergies there? We’ve heard Hawaii is bad for allergies…that’s why my sister got to keep Cousin Highway as their dog. His owners were moving to Hawaii and he has bad allergies (plus didn’t have a record of his first rabies shot so couldn’t go).
Spoiled Doxie says
What a beautiful and tasty sounding fruit!
