About starfruit

Starfruit is also known as carambola and grows on a tree native to Southeast Asia. The fruit is popular throughout the world, and the trees are cultivated in areas that enjoy tropical climates. The fruit is comprised of five or six ridges that look like a star when cut in cross-section. 

Carambola has been growing in Asia for hundreds of years, possibly originating in the Maluku Islands or Sri Lanka. Malaysia is the leading global producer of starfruit, alongside Australia, Guyana, Israel, and India, but the United States also grows carambola in Florida, Hawaii, and other areas with tropical climates.

Starfruit first became popular in the United States during the 1970s, when a horticulturalist named Morris Arkin began to grow carambola. The sweet 'Arkin' strain that was named for him rapidly became the most widely-grown strain in Florida.
