RE: starfruit

Jim: This is one of my kid's all time favorite fruits (mine as well)
since we "discovered" it a couple of years ago...it is only seasonally
available here and we wait for months for it to come back...just went
grocery shopping yesterday and there they were...bought six and they'll
be gone before the week is over, I'm sure.

Subject: [CHAT] starfruit

my starfruit tree is producing it's winter crop right now. because it's a 
grafted selection, the fruit are larger and more uniform than most seedling 
trees produce. mine also have superior flavor and juiciness.

but thank random selection, i guess, the tree is not as prolific as most 
seedlings. my tree produces 100 or so fruits in each crop [usually two, but 
sometimes three, crops per year]; most seedlings produce two or three times 
that much at each crop.

everyday these days i haul one or two re-cycled albertson's grocery bags of 
fruit to the office and every day they are snatched up before noon.

i never would have guessed so many people like them.
