Yummy Carambola

Pretty cool name, huh? No it’s not some form of the West Nile Virus. It’s actually commonly referred to as star fruit. Although I bet most people still haven’t heard of it.

We wanted to try a new fruit so we grabbed one of these guys. Turns out it’s really high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. (an interesting and scary aside – according to Wikipedia, this fruit can be poisonous if you have kidney problems!)  Probably not surprising with those features that it would taste citrus-y, but it also has the consistency of an apple. We all thought it was very good and would recommend you try it out too!
