Benefits of Star Anise
Star Anise Fruit
The star used commonly as an herb is the fruit of the Illicium verum. A hollow woody shell shaped like an eight armed star protects large bean like seeds. The fruit is harvested just before it ripens to prevent the release of seeds. Before the fruit matures it is soft and light green with slighty reddish brown tips.
