The Chinese Cherry is hardly a cherry as we know it.
Also called China Estrella, or star fruit, it is delicious with a texture similar to a bell pepper, but sweet with a tiny bit of tart, and thicker around the outside.
I planted this one 18 months ago, and this is my first fruit off the tree. Can’t wait for more, as they bare super healthy and great in salads or just whole.
The fruit is generally brighter and a bit glossy. These two early birds were a little rusty looking which should go away when the tree is ready to bear fruit.
