White Star Apple (chrysophyllum cainito blanco)

Inconspicuous tiny purplish-white flowers bloom with a delicate sweet fragrance. Ornate round white skinned fruit are produced mid-summer and ripen to a whitish-green. While the skin is not edible the interior flesh is soft and sweet and has a distinct asterisk star shape when cut cross section. Also know as a Golden Leaf Tree due to the sharp contrast of colors between the deep glossy green top and the silky golden yellow bottoms of the leaves. Full size trees have been recorded growing as high as 100 feet tall with short trunks growing to 3 feet wide.
