What is a star fruit, how is it prepared.?

Star fruit is also called Carambola. It has five long ridges that run down the length of the fruit so when you slice it, it is the shape of a star. The fruit is mostly yellow. but you may find them with some green left on them in the store. These would just need to ripen more. The very tips of the ridges turn brown when the fruit is ripe. It is fine to eat the skin, but some star fruits will have seeds in them which you should not eat.

It tastes like a mix of apple and citrus, a little sweet and a little tart. You can just slice and eat, or add to a fruit salad or fresh fruit tart, or chop and add to a mixed greens salad with a raspberry vinagrette dressing.

You can eat the skin. Peeling it off would be a total mess. The skin adds a sourness to the fruit flavor.

Or.. you chould just eat it like an apple, and spit out the tiny seeds.

I've found them at the standard Ralph's and Vons just about anywhere. I think it's the Vons in Point Loma that has a pretty good sized produce section. Otherwise, check out "Ranch 99", an asian food superstore, at 7330 Clairemont Mesa Blvd. I've seen some pretty exotic fruits there, but really, check the standard stores first, I'm pretty sure they sell them.

How long does it take for star fruit to ripe?

Starfruit or carambola should be a nice a golden yellow color when ripe. A little brown around the edges won't hurt. If you are keeping them in the fridge they won't ripen. Leave at room temp for a day or two. If they are already at room temp then try putting them in a brown paper bag for a day or two.

How do you eat a star fruit?

I've seen white tourists in Hawaii on TV eat it like corn on the cob, without peeling or anything. Of course, they must have washed it beforehand, and spit out the seeds when the camera wasn't rolling. They just held the opposite ends and bit into it. This was when the starfruit was yellow and ripe.

In our house, my family eats starfruit when it is still green and slightly sour. We just cut it into half-inch slices, crosswise (so you the slices are like stars) and dip them in a bit of salt. I think a lot of Asians eat sour fruits like this, you should try it. Yes there are seeds, so you should put out a dish you can put the seeds into.

Star fruit plant can be grown in containers also. It has two varieties one is very sour other one sweet which taste very good. I purchased one two feet high plant having numerous buds from nursery & planted it in big container on terrace. Fruits have come in it after 15 days. These may remain small in size but plant & fruits look very beautiful.
