Bilimbis are the favourite of parrots. They will just chop them to bits. Just cannot click them as they camouflage with the greens around. We use bilimbis in curries and chutneys and also make pickle. Have you seen these?

Looks appetizing I wrote a post on the pickle I made
This pickle is made from bilimbis that grow in our garden It is a sweet and sour pickle. Although I do not much like pickle there are always guests that love...

@allknowing it would be, so no need to add lime. It's a simple salad made using bilimbi (thinly sliced), chili, shallots, salt, sugar and canned sardines.
