Customer Tips & Reviews Bilimbi
In my place in India (Kerala), it is grown abundantly and a popular household medicine for controlling blood pressure.
The fruit are used in sweet and sour dishes and raw they look like pickles and taste like very green carambolas.Trees are tougher than carambolas.

Bilimbis can be dried and kept for months in tightly lid containers. Cut fruits in half and place them under the sun for a few days on a cloth. They will shrink and turn blakish when dried. They can then be used as part of your normal dish
