Eating a serving of star apple contributes 3 g of fiber to the recommended daily intake of 25 to 38 g. Fiber provides bulk to your diet, a factor that can make your stomach feel fuller for longer. The star fruit can be round, oblate or ellipsoid 510cm in diameter. It may be redpurple, darkpurple, or palegreen. It gives the feel of a rubber ball when in hand. The glossy, smooth, thin, leathery skin adheres tightly to the inner rind which, in purple fruits, is darkpurple and 1/4 to 1/2 in (612.5 mm) thick; in green and white fruits 1/8 to 3/16 in.(35 mm) thick.
