My love of Starfruit.




Starfruit, inside


*Location : At the roof top of a Hongout Hostel at Singapore.


*Thought : At a grocery store, one of my favorite places to visit when I’m away, I found this amazing fruit. Sometimes English naming surprises me. It is literally ‘Star’ fruit, right? It is so right, and genius name.


As a person who deeply involved with Astronomy, anything shapes like star get my interest. This star fruit became my favorite thing in  as soon as I saw. Not just the shape I loved, the taste. I am not a sweet tooth, so I don’t like too sweet fruits either, so Starfruit is just perfect for my taste. Little bit sour, like.. a grapefruit which I also like.


Everyday I bought several Star fruits and had it for dinner or with other food. Star fruit juice as well.


My love of Starfruit, it never stops! It totally deserve pick for my Travel Photo of the week! Don’t you think?

    I love star fruit, and remember the first time I had it here in the U.S. I haven’t seen it in the grocery store on a while…maybe it’s time for a trip to the Singapore or Malaysia…

  2. I’m not sure, but it certainly looks like a fruit in Brazil that is called ‘carambola’. I don’t remember the taste, but we had it in our house (the plant) when I was a kid.

      I think you are right! Google says it is. 🙂 Wonderful! So you can grow that in the yard! Awesome.. Shamd I don’t live in Tropical atmosphere. 🙂

  3. Hi Juno, it’s interesting to see foreigners fascinated with our local produce, I.e; starfruits:) I like starfruits too! The Chinese here (Malaysia) rub a lil salt and eat, apparently to reduce heatiness. But the fruit itself is cooling. It’s nice to juice it too.
    Love ur blog!:)

      Right. 🙂 So you see everyday in supermarket, right? I really miss Starfruit juice. It’s perfect taste! 🙂
      Fresh, sour mmmm
      but with salt? Don’t know about that.. It makes taste better? 🙂 Maybe!

  4. why dont you try to dip it with rojak sauce. (refer this link : http://www.malaysianfood.net/recipes/reciperojak.htm) it’s easy to make. trust me, it will give extra flavours to your starfruit! 😀

    p/s: if you dont have time to make it, just prepare some soy sauce, mix it with a lil bit of sugar. (if you love spicy food, add some chopped thai bird chillies and tadaaa~ enjoy dipping!
