They are in season now, and I just couldn't resist eating at least one! We used to have a tree-ful of star apples while I was growing up (we had the all-green variety, though). My siblings and I would climb the tree, stand on our garage roof and try picking the "caimito" fruits using a tall bamboo with a net on the other end. I was terrible at it, but my brother was a pro. We all loved the fruit, including a few pets. Yup, we had at least two dogs who waited for their share...and they knew how to eat the fruit, too: leave the seeds and try 'munching' on the fruit without tearing the skin into shreds.
Sinking my teeth into the juicy fruit sent me hurtling back to those warm sunny days when all we really ever cared about was how to spend our weekends (and summer days, when classes was out) playing with our friends... :)
