The carambola is appropriately nick named star fruit for it's five golden wings that reveal a star-shaped pattern when cut crosswise. The juicy transparent flesh has a citrus quality with a floral accent and is delicious eaten fresh, made into juice or into a delicious chutney. The tree makes an ideal specimen plant due to its attractive foliage and has the added bonus of producing large quantities of fruit. Carambolas are best grown in frost free subtropical climate. They can withstand light frost when established. They generally have two crops a year, one in summer and the second crop in winter. With pruning at different times of the year they can be induced to crop from summer to winter. A very attractive fruiting tree, well worth having in the backyard. Cut into cross sections the fruits make attractive garnishes for sweet and savory dishes particularly seafood dishes. A relish can be made from unripe fruits by combining horseradish, celery, vinegar, seasonings and spices.

Carambola Star Fruit

The comment regarding oxalic acid - this incorrect. There is oxalic acid in the leaves (which are used as traditional medicines) not the fruit. See the paper https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0102695X18302850#tbl0005Like rhubarb.

Used to grow carambola in Darwin, NT. Won 1st prizes at Darwin Show. My tip is to cut tips of star off before eating. Cut into stars and put on pavlovas.

For a SE Asian style treat, eat fresh slices/edges dipped in thick salty soy mixed with sugar and/or sambal belacan (shrimp and chilli paste) OR substitute hae ko (black shrimp paste) for the soy.

With this fruit you can either eat it raw, if you like the taste as is. Or you can make salad out of it. Or you can use it as a semi dried fruit candied .

Do not consume if you have kidney problems due to te oxalic acids inside the fruit, dont take with medication because it can cause it to increase the dosage in the body.
