What is Carambola? 

The Averrhoa Carambola tree produces star fruit, popularly known as Carambola. When unripe, star fruit is dark green, but as it ripens, it turns a shiny yellow color. The meaty, crisp, and juicy ripe star fruit has a sweet and slightly tangy flavor. The smaller star-fruits have a tangier flavor than the larger ones.

Where they usually found?

Although star fruit is most common in tropical areas like India, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines, it is found all over the world.
