The fruit produces a strong odour and has a sweet taste. It has a tropical sweet flavor with nuances of apple, lychee and persimmon. Fruits can contain anywhere between three and ten seeds but those with fewer seeds tend to have the best flavour.
Cut through the rind completely to about the middle of the fruit. Hold the fruit stem side down and gently twist the top off. You can eat the fruit raw, or add it in fruit salads.
The star fruit is a decent source of several nutrients and is particularly rich in fiber and vitamin C.
