This is my Belimbing Wuluh Tree in my house
Belimbing Wuluh (Averrhoa Belimbi)
Belimbing Wuluh is not commonly consumed because the taste is very sour. Usually, people use it to cook sour soup, shrimp gulai and fish gulai. From this fruit, you can make asam sunti (a special spice) and pickles out of it.
It is sometimes known as the cucumber tree because of the shape of its fruit.
