In the United States, they’re called starfruit, but in Brazil these tart, yellow-green fruit go by carmabola.  In the video above, WIU alumnus and Salvador resident Doug Adair and his wife, Nilsi, introduce us to one of Brazil’s special tangy treats.



  1. ooo i love starfruit!

  2. sounds great!

  3. mmm yummy natural fresh fruit

  4. That looks really yummy. I really want to just pick it off of the tree and eat it. Mr. Scherer I defenantly think that you should bring the honors band back a lot of Carmabola!!!!!!

  5. I agree that’s an awesome name. The unique fruit there also seems like it would be interesting to try.

  6. I really want to try starfruit now! Carmabola is an awesome name for a fruit, what do they taste like?

  7. Please give Doug Adair my greetings! Looks like fun and I wish were there.
