What's going on with all these fruits with multiple names? It's a thing, trust me. The Caimito, as we know it, also known as Star Apple, Caimito, Purple Star Apple, Abiaba, Pomme de Lait, Milk Fruit, and many more.  The Caimito is a relative of the Mamey, Sapote.

When you cut the skin, you can see the star pattern that gave it its name. The Caimito tastes like sweet caramel custard, that's why it's very commonly used as a dessert, just chill and eat with a spoon.

Important note: Don't take a big bite out of your caimito since you only should eat the interior fruit flesh. That pulp around the seeds is where it's at. Needless to say, don't eat the seeds either.

The Regular Box contains 5 pounds of purple caimito and the Large Box contains 8 pounds. They are both tree-ripened and hand-picked.
