Starfruit (Averrhoa carambola)

Have you tried one?
Well this is the first starfruit I tried. Max bought one from Ranch 99.
Starfruit gets it’s name for after you cut the fruit it looks like a star.

The fruit was very fresh but I thought it was had a strange taste more similar to vegetable than fruit.
The skin was similar to celery skin. The fruit was juicy but lacked sweetness.

Have any of you recently tried any new fruits? I finally found the correct name for a fruit I really enjoyed in china which was the Mangosteen. It’s delicious fresh but yucky canned.
