The African Star Apple also known as Agbalumo, Udala, Ciwoh or African Cherry is currently in season. I do get excited when it is in season because it is one of my favourite fruits to eat.
The exotic fruit has a chewable edible skin that ranges in color from green to orange, depending on the stage of ripeness. The tender, sweet inner flesh is off-white with seeds making the inner to look like a star-shaped fruit. This obviously shows where it got the nickname ‘star apple’ and has a star shape formed by seeds through the middle of the fruit. The beautiful fruit can be gotten mostly everywhere in Nigeria towards the end of November till later in March when it would have gone out of season.
