Carambola (Averrhoa carambola) is a tropical exotic fruit. Also called star fruit, due to its star-shaped format when cut on cross section.
The trees usually grow to 3 - 6 metres tall but sometimes reach a height of 10+ metres.
Fruits are eaten fresh, in salads or in juices. Also widely used as decoration for drinks, cocktails and desserts. Rich in Vitamin A and C, a standard fruit measures around 15 cm.
