USE

Carambola can be eaten out of hand as the whole fruit is edible, including the waxy skin. Therefore the carambola doesn’t need to be peeled, although it should be washed before eating. This fruit is also often used in salads, tastes delicious with ice cream and desserts and makes an attractive garnish for various dishes or cocktails.

TIP!

Carambolas are thirst quenching and contain less than 40 calories.
