Star Fruit

Cut this yellow fruit across its center and you’ll see where it gets its name: slices are shaped like a five-pointed star. Star fruit, also called carambola, doesn’t ripen much after it’s picked so look for those that are mostly yellow with only a tinge of green at the tips. Slice over fruit salads or use as a garnish for meat, poultry and fish entrees. The taste is sweet and texture crunchy like celery.

Calories in Fruit

One 3½ to 4-inch long star fruit contains 28 calories and half of an adult’s daily requirement for Vitamin C.
