03 Nov 2009
 

Originally from Indonesia and Malaysia, is cultivated widely across Asia. It's an excellent source of vitamin C and A, as well as the irion and potassium. The fruit has a tart flavour and a star shape. Some varieties are sweet, while others are sour. Try to avoid ones with brown spots or streaks.

Use: It's attractive in fruit salads makes a wonderful garnish when sliced. It doesn't require peeling or or de- seeding and is slow to discolour.
