Fruit of the Month: Star Fruit

Every month the CDC highlights a fruit and vegetable that belong in a healthy diet. February's fruit of the month is the star fruit. Gaining popularity in the US, most people have seen the star shaped tropical delight in your grocer's produce section. Star fruit also known as carambola comes in two varieties, tart and sweet. Both varieties are high in vitamin c, with no sodium or cholesterol.
