Carambolas (Averrhoa carambola, caramba, bliming, or country gooseberry, of the family Oxalidaceae) are native to Indonesia but are grown in all tropical countries. The yellow fruit is up to 5 in. long and 3 in. wide, with five pronounced ribs and a star-shaped cross section. The flesh is translucent, yellow, tart, and juicy and contains large brown seeds. The fruit is eaten raw or made into juices, jams, jellies, and tarts. A related species, A. belimbi, known as Belimbi, produces green acidic fruit that is used to make pickles, curries, and preserves.
