As chapter 4 wraps up, I’ve just realised something. There actually is a real life star fruit ! I might have been subconsciously thinking about this, maybe.
It’s quite common here but I’m not sure how well known it is globally. It has a very pulpy watery texture and a subtle fruity flavour, kinda like a diluted watered down lime flavoured watermelon. Actually it’s not really that impressive so I’d understand why it’s not a popular fruit, ahaha. Starting chapter 5 we’ll be stepping into the short story territory ~
