Carambola (Starfruit)

Carambola (Starfruit)

As its name suggests, Starfruit resembles a 5-pointed star when cut across. They are crunchy and have a slightly tart, acidic, sweet taste, reminiscent of Pears, Apples, and sometimes Grapes. Starfruit has a slightly tough outer skin ranging from yellow to green and tangy light yellow flesh on the inside.

Carambola is a species of tree native to Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia and is popular throughout Southeast Asia. It is also grown in Dominican Republic, Brazil, Peru, Ghana, Guyana, Tonga and French Polynesia. Starfruit is commercially grown in the United States in south Florida and Hawaii. It is closely related to the Bilimbi.
