StarFruit ( Ma-ferng )

At the farm, my star fruit are ripe! As you can see from the photo they grow on trees in Thailand and are ripe when they've mostly yellow. They're not quite so popular here, the flavour isn't strong and the fruits waxy skin makes it not so easy to eat. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly citrus, slightly rubbery. But slices of star fruit do look nice in fruit salads.
