STAR APPLE - GRIMAL

Star Apple - Grimal For Sale (Large)Botanical Name: Chrysophyllum cainito
Description

A purple skinned variety with translucent flesh. The delicious sweet fruit has flavours reminiscent of grape and melon, however, fruit should be well-coloured and mature, as immature fruit are sticky with latex, especially near the skin.
Star apples are very attractive as an ornamental specimen tree. A medium to large evergreen tree, its weeping form and glossy, velvet, green leaves, with a gold underside, gives the tree its ability to change from green to gold with a small wind.

This is one of my favourite fruit but it's so hard to grow. My tree was only 1.5 metres tall and covered in lot's of  tiny flowers but sadly no fruits. The tree struggled through the last winter and shed all it's leaves . It's still not recovered since.
