..Or how the star apple and it’s monikers got their names, from star apple to milky breasts to ‘vagina’ fruit …

Star Apple

For the pattern you see when you cut a cross section through the fruit, due to the arrangement of the seeds which cluster into a five point star. One of the most common names in many parts of the world.
