About: Carambola, commonly referred to as starfruit, is the fruit of Averrhoa carambola, a species of tree native to the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Nepal, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The fruit is about 5 to 15 centimeters (2 to 6 inches) in length and is an oval shape. It usually has five prominent longitudinal ridges. The skin is thin, smooth, and waxy and turns a light to dark yellow when ripe. The flesh is translucent and light yellow to yellow in color. Carambolas are best consumed shortly after they ripen, when they are yellow with a light shade of green or just after all traces of green have disappeared. The juice from carambolas is also used in iced drinks, particularly the juice of the sour varieties. Puzzle Of The Day On:
