The dried, star-shaped fruit of this Oriental tree are called Star Anise because of their distinctive star shape.

Star Anise is an essential component of Chinese Five Spice powder, and is used in many Oriental recipes, especially those made with duck. Star Anise also adds flavour to chocolate brownies, and stewed compotes of fruit when placed in whole during cooking.
