tiny pink flowers on a starfruit tree
One of my neighbours has a starfruit tree in her small garden. I saw many pretty but tiny pink flowers on her tree.
The starfruit is a juicy tropical fruit grown throughout Southeast Asia. Due to the hot weather and H1N1 pandemic, I was advised by my elders to drink more starfruit juice. They are a great source of Vitamin C and will cool down the body system.
For anyone who is trying to lose weight, this fruit has only 30 calories plus lots of fiber. :D They are full of antioxidants and flavonoids. Very healthy fruit!
When ripe, starfruit turns a bright yellow.
When you cut the fruit, each slice has a star shape. They taste sour when unripe. I prefer to eat the ripe ones because they are sweet. Besides making juice with the starfruit, I also cook it in a few ways. They make salads look pretty.
Note : I'm still having problems uploading my photos to Blogger. grrrr.....
