Product Info:
There are two main types of carambola, the small sour (or tart) type and the larger sweet type. The sour varieties have a higher oxalic acid content than the sweet type. Carambola or Star fruit are crunchy and can be compared in taste to pears, apples, and sometimes grapes. They are a great source of Vitamin C. Star fruit has a tough skin with a tart white inside.

Suggested Use:
Dried fruit is very versatile. They're wonderful in granola and muffins. Mix with nuts or seeds for trail mixes. Chop them and add to bread or wild rice stuffings seasoned with sage, or eat them right out of the bag! You can even find some great recipes here on our website.
