Last week during the Cub Foods VIP event, I was introduced to a new fruit - starfruit. While I've ordered the starfruit flavor at Tea Garden several times in the past, I never knew much about the real version of the fruit. Truly, I've never ventured into the world of tropical fruits besides the standards like pineapple, mango and bananas (although I did discover a love for passion fruit in the last year). From the outside starfruit doesn't look like much:
But once you cut into it, it's a totally different story. Hello fun and beautiful fruit!
Tom, the produce guy at Cub Foods let us sample starfruit during our tour. The skin is edible, but a little tough, so I stuck to eating just the fruit part. It was delicious! A little tart with the texture of an Asian pear, this is a great fruit to brighten up your day. At $1.29 a piece, it is definitely a splurge, but I made my husband feel special by sending starfruit slices in his lunch the other day.
Have you tried starfruit? What did you think?
