Star Apple - Grimal

Star Apple - Grimal

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.
