African white star apple benefits

Chrysophyllum albidum, also known as the white star apple, is a forest fruit found in tropical Africa. The dark yellow fruit is usually grown in rural areas from December to April. When you pick it from the tree, it’s sour and acidic, but when the fruit falls to the ground, it’s ripe and sweet.

In the star fruit, the pulp surrounds five brown seeds arranged in the shape of a star. It is split open by squeezing, exposing the pulp, which is digested by chewing it slowly after the milky, sticky juice has drained away. There are also times when juice is fermented into wine or distilled into spirits.
