A tropical tree with golden leaves and edible sweet purple fruit. When you cut the fruit in half it has a star shaped arrangement of seeds inside and the soft ripe fruit has some apple flavour, hence the common name star apple. The leaves are very stunning, with shimmering gold velvety undersides and glossy green above.
