Can anyone recommend a substitute for star fruit? I'd like to use it in a dish with chicken. Thanks!

Depending on the rest of the flavors you're working with, fresh pineapple, mango or melon might be a fun (if not totally direct) substitute.

I think kiwi or even apple might also be good, but w/o the recipe it is hard to make a suggestion.

I agree with kristen and hardlikearmour, especially melon (maybe honeydew) or a crisp apple. Starfruit is really fragrant but has a clean, delicate flavor. I'm curious about the recipe too, since I have mostly eaten starfruit out of hand. I once used starfruit in a pie with mango and apple banana, and the starfruit was very subtle.

the tartness of starfruit reminds me of pomegranate while the crisp texture is reminiscent of fuji apples (ideally wax apples (http://en.wikipedia.org...) , but those are incredibly hard to come by here in the US).. the ether aroma that a ripe starfruit emanates.. pineapples...
