The Carambola (Averrhoa carambola) is named for the unique shape of the fruit when it is cut in cross-section.   This fruit is a delight to eat adding crunch and texture to salads, salsas and sauces as well as an unusual garnish for beverages, fruit salads, cakes and pies.  Even the juice is a refreshing alternative to citrus juice.

There are several varieties (cultivars) that do well in South Texas.  Arkin, a medium to large orange skinned fruit, the most populat commercial cultivar in Florida.  Sri Kembangan, a selection from Thailand that is compact with thick ribs and orange-yellow.  Kari, a Hawaiian selection very similar to the Sri Kembagan but with fewer seeds.  Fwang Tung, a Thai variety the has whitish-green skin with large, thin wings.
