These star apples are much like the feijoa, jelly-like centre and rind that can’t be eaten. Tasting like a milky custard apple with a mangosteen, and slight pineapple tang, it has so much depth of flavour!
Its other names are cainito, abiaba, pomme du lait, estrella and aguay.
There are two variants available in the market:
- The green-skinned is generally sweeter variety.
- The white and purple flesh is striking to look at, but it is mildly sweeter than the green-skinned variety when ripe.
