Star Apples must be eaten fresh. Only the juicy, milky flesh inside is edible. And the Star Apple skin contains a sticky latex substance in it. By cutting the fruit in half an inch before pulling it apart, and revealing the star pattern inside. As well as the seeds. The number of seeds contained in each fruit will usually be from, 5 to 10 fairly good-sized seeds. To eat the milky flesh, we recommend the use of a spoon to scoop.
