Star apple (Chrysophyllum cainito) is a tropical tree of the family Sapotaceae. It is a relative of the mamey sapote and the green sapote. This fruit is native to the Greater Antilles and the West Indies. It has spread to the lowlands of Central America and is now grown throughout the tropics, including Southeast Asia. Star apple has varieties of different names such as a golden-leaf tree, caimito maduraverde in Spain, caimite, and caimitier in France, and cainito and Ajara in Portugal.

They come in two different varieties, one with purple skin and one with green skin. Both varieties are tree-ripened and unlike many trees, fruits will not fall off the tree when mature so must be picked by hand when ripe. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, simple oval, entire, 5–15 cm long. The tiny flowers are purplish white and have a sweet fragrant smell. The plant is self-fertile and produces a strong odor.

The fruit is globose and typically measures from 2 to 3 inches in diameter. it usually has purple skin with a faint green area appearing around the calyx when it is ripe. When the fruit is cut in half the gelatinous cells form a star shape, hence the name of the fruit. The pulp of the Star Apple is aromatic and has a tropical sweet flavor with nuances of apple, lychee, and persimmon. The fruits are used as a fresh dessert fruit; it is sweet and often served chilled.

Star Apple Benefits:

Plant dullness or leaf drop due to transit

Occasionally, plants may experience a temporary dullness or leaf drop during transportation due to factors such as insufficient sunlight and water.

Kindly follow our plant care instructions and closely monitor its condition for the next 15-20 days. This period will allow the plant to rejuvenate and regain its strength, returning to a healthy state.

Right time to re-plant after delivery

Immediate repotting or re-planting of delivered plants can induce stress on them.

We recommend maintaining the plants in the original bag upon receipt and consistently watering them for the initial two weeks. Additionally, place the plants in an area with 50% sunlight during this period. After the plants have acclimated to your climate and achieved stability, you may proceed to repot them into larger containers or directly into the field.
