This southeastern Asian favorite has picked up some steam stateside for its wholly unique, almost incomparable flavor. Also referred to as carambolas, star fruits manage to be sweet, tart, and acidic all at once, though different varieties prioritize different flavors. Additionally, the entire fruit is edible and can be used at any stage of ripeness to great effect. If you prize the exotic, starfruit is the perfect option.

Peak Season: January - April, October - December
