Also known in Spanish as Carambola, this fruit has been a wowing people for quite some time with its delicate balance of tartness verses sweet. The variety we grow on our farm is " Fwang Tung" which has a wonderful sweet taste and smell. You will be pleasantly surprised with this variety. We have over 232 of these trees on our grove.
Similar to an apple you can eat the skin and all. If you cut the fruit into a cross section it will reveal a five pointed star. It has a few small seeds which can be removed. If you dare try taking the seeds and growing the fruit as this tree can be grown from seed and will produce fruit. You do need to be in a subtropical growing area but try it in your living room for fun.
You can dehydrate the fruit to be eaten in the future. This fruit is rich in vitamin C and A. It's known to cure a hangover or two to help you get over your Presidential party.
Due to the unusually hot summer, shipping highly perishable fruit is more tricky than usual Some fruit is arriving over-ripe. If you have an issue with your order, please call me. I pack every box myself, and want you to be happy with your fruit!
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the Keys. You are invited to visit our farm for free as a tropical fruit of the month customer. We grow for you!!
