I have a friend who grows starfruit tree. the fruits are giagentic! The color is light yellow but size of the fruit reaches over 5 inches in length and 4-5 inch in diameter. I wanted to extract seeds and start my own tree. I CANT FIND ANY SEEDS INSIDE!!!!! Last year she gave me few fruits and i found only 3 seeds in all. Why don,t they have seeds?!

There are seedless varieties which must be what your friend has. Varieties with seeds contain about 10 to 12 seeds in each fruit. You must plant them quickly when you do find seeds, because they are only viable a short time. Also, fruits grown from seed are highly variable and you may not get a desirable fruit.
