Product Description

This fruit acquired its name from the 5-pointed star shape when cut across the middle of the fruit. It is a glossy yellow ellipsoid decorated with five deeply delineated longitudinal ribs or wings that form star shapes when sliced. Varies from fragrantly sweet to puckery sour. When sweet, flesh hints of plums, apples and Concord grapes with citric edge; when sour, it is brightly sharp and lemony, but less harsh and more fruity.
