    The carambola, commonly known as starfruit due to its exquisite shape, is one of the more exotic fruits available at your local grocery store. This tropical delight is often eaten raw and tastes delicious. The fruit itself is a yellowish green color, and is pretty firm, so much so that it seems practically inedible from the outside. It has a crisp, fresh taste, something like an apple but a little bit sweeter. The best part is probably the shape, which is a fantastically unusual star that, when cut up just right, would look great on a platter or in a salad. This fruit has an exceptional amount of potassium and heaps of vitamin C, according to the USDA nutrient database. This fruit is basically as healthy as any other, but its structure makes it far more charming.
