The fruit grows on a tree with colourful foliage—green on one side and brown on another. Its star shape can be seen if cut transversely. Star apple can either have green peel and white flesh or be purple inside and outside. It is used for confectionary, such as jellies and marmalades​, but can be also eaten fresh.
