Fresh Starfruit (5 lbs)
OUT OF SEASON
Grown In: Dade County, FL
Also known in Spanish as Carambola, this fruit has been wowing people for quite some time with its delicate balance of tartness verses sweet. The variety we grow on our farm is " Fwang Tung" which has a wonderful sweet taste and smell. Similar to an apple you can eat the skin and all. If you cut the fruit into a cross section it will reveal a five pointed star. It has a few small seeds which can be removed. If you dare try taking the seeds and growing the fruit as this tree can be grown from seed and will produce fruit. You do need to be in a subtropical growing area but try it in your living room for fun. You can dehydrate the fruit to be eaten on a future date. This fruit is rich in vitamin C and A.
