Star Fruit and Spondias

Our new rental has a Star Fruit tree in the front yard. The fruit tastes a bit like a mix of crisp apple and sweet grapes. It's good!

Star Fruit

It's also known as Carambola.
It is native to the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Another fruit we recently picked up at the market for the first time is called spondias - also known as the Spanish plum. It's a bit like eating an apple in texture and taste. Lamay kaayo! (very good!)
