Also known as Rasbhari in India and as Physalis or Inca berries in some countries.
Flavour is pleasant, unique tomato/pineapple like blend. High pectin makes them ideal for a jam.
Everything is a superfood these days but rasbharis are a rich source of anti oxidants, calcium and vitamins . They are juicy and tart and great in salads or on their own .
Bearss limes are commonly harvested and sold when still completely dark green. When allowed to ripen, however, they turn noticeably lighter and take on a little bit of a lovely yellow hue.

Star Apple, Caimito - The skin and rind are inedible and contain latex, but the pulp is soft, purple and white and sweet. Semi-translucent flesh, free of acidity with the texture of soft persimmons. To my taste freshly ripened star-apples are delicious. It is good eaten fresh or mixed with other fruits.
Difficult to transport due to soft nature and short life. Native to the West Indies. Supposedly named Star Apple because when sliced open they have a star design in the center. Short season of 45 days.
Cut the fruit into two parts before using a spoon to take out the pulp bit by bit until nothing is left.
It is ripe when the outside skin loses its gloss and, like an avocado, gives a little when you press on it.
