Does this sound like a Fwang Tung Carambola?
Yesterday I ate the first fruit from my Fwang Tung Carambola. I've been wondering if the tree was mislabeled, because the fruit is a lot yellower than the photos I've seen online. The shape seems right - it's very round and mid-sized, but it's definitely yellow versus white. The one I picked and ate was even yellower than the one in the photo, which is still on the tree.
The taste was very distinctive and I thought this might be where someone could make a guess as to whether it might be Fwang Tung or not. The fruit was sweet, but very mild, tasting much like a pear. There was almost no citrus flavor at all. Additionally, there was a subtle undertone that tasted almost like coconut - a little spicy and tropical. Does this sound like Fwang Tung to you or another variety?
