  1. I tell you I’ve seen these fruits and would back away as the appearance is a bit unattractive but after viewing your blog I might try a few. Thanks

  2. Great post, Lucy. It’s always a good idea to add variety to your diet. This insures added nutrients from multiple sources.

    If you live in a warm climate, such as South Florida and Southern California, you can grow star fruit in your own back yard. Probably some of these others, as well. However, if you can’t grow them, you might find it worth the money to add them to your diet on occasion.

    Keep up the good work. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  3. A few of these we can grab locally, but others I have never seen in stores. It is hard to even get a pomelo or blood orange in these parts. The joys of being in a city that is “small town” minded. Well I should say in the food dept.
