How to choose Star Fruits in general?
- Choose uniform, large, rich looking yellow-orange fruits. Avoid green color, small size fruits, which tend to be extremely acidic, and unappetizing. Avoid those with cuts, bruise, shriveled or spots.
- Unripe light green fruits may be kept at room temperature until they turn rich orange-yellow color.
- Ripe star fruits can be stored unwashed for 2-3 days at room temperature. Storing the fruit longer than this period, especially in very hot climatic conditions, requires refrigeration. Star fruits kept in plastic bags and kept in refrigerators can last for approximately a week.

When to avoid Star Fruits
Avoid eating star fruit if you have kidney problems! Starfruit contains oxalic acid, which can be harmful to individuals suffering from kidney failure, kidney stones, or those under kidney dialysis treatment. Confirmed by this website.
