The leaves of the tree often turn yellow, and from afar you can be tricked into thinking that there is a juicy starfruit waiting to be picked...nope, just a leaf!
Good for you
According to Wikipedia they are close to being a super fruit, which is good to know! They are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, and low in sugar, sodium and acid. Plus they are a good source of all of these: vitamin A, potassium, calcium, fibre, phospohorus, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, tryptophan, 16 amino acids and oxalic acid.
Oxalic acid can be harmful for those with kidney problems. The consumption of star fruit can also interact with certain medications.
