Fwang Tung Carambola flavor?

julia42(9a)September 24, 2012

I just got to try my first fruit from my "Fwang Tung" carambola tree. I've been wondering a little if it was mislabeled, however, because the fruits look awfully yellow compared to other Fwang Tung pictures I've seen on the internet, which look white. The shape is similar - very round and mid-sized.

The flavor was unique, though. It was sweet and very mild, almost like a pear, but it also had kind of a coconutty undertone to it. It wasn't very citrusy at all. Does this flavor sound like Fwang Tung or something else? I'm just curious what I have...

I've been eyeing this post for weeks now, and just have to say...do you really want to eat something called "Fwang Tung"? That sounds like gym socks mixed with belly button lint.

Sorry, I know you said you like the flavor, and I'm sure it's nothing like that!
