Have you ever tried Star Fruit? I will show you four ways to eat a fresh Star Fruit. Star Fruit has distinctive ridges running down its sides (usually five); in cross-section, it resembles a star. Star Fruit is rich in antioxidants, potassium, and vitamin C; and low in sugar, sodium, and acid. It also has shown antimicrobial activity against E. coli. In South Asian countries, there is a belief that eating Star Fruit enhances the sex drive of males. However Star Fruit contains caramboxin and oxalic acid. Both substances are harmful to individuals suffering from kidney failure, kidney stones, or those under kidney dialysis treatment.

Have you ever tried Dragon Fruit? I will show you six ways to eat a fresh Dragon fruit. Dragon fruit is a little funny looking, the skin is yellow or red, and bumpy. I expected to find a big pit in the middle, but was surprised to find no pit, just little soft crunchy seeds, kind of like the seeds in a kiwi, but a little bigger. The flavor is not strong but nice, like a really good honeydew melon. Note that you shouldn’t eat the skin because it has mild laxative properties :).
Have you ever tried a Guava? I will show you three ways to eat a fresh Guava. Even though some may prefer to cook or turn it into juice with their blender, guavas are still best eaten in their raw form. Some may prefer to eat with sugar, salt, pepper, soy sauce or vinegar, but I prefer to eat raw.
A Guava tastes much like a pear. The skin does not taste the best but it has vitamins. Some people eat the seeds, but I find them to be very hard and you have to swallow them,while they don’t provide any health benefit.
