Starfruit

starfruit

One of the unexpectedly cool things about food in Japan is finding wacky imported fruits just sitting next to the apples and oranges at the local supermarket. When was the last time you saw a starfruit at Coles or Safeway?

Sadly, Starfruit reminds me a little of the white part of the watermelon rind. It's not exactly nasty, it's just 'why bother'?

I love Starfruit!!! :D When I was in QLD, this fruit was always in a salad.
I so gotta hunt this fruit down and eat it again... Probably not the right season for it atm.
