B10 is a sweet orange-yellow starfruit, originating in Malaysia. The fruit are medium to large, up to 15cm long, of excellent quality and flavour. Carambola trees have an attractive weeping habit, producing a profusion of pink flowers. The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Tropical fruit Trees or the 'exotics' grow naturally in lush forests where they are protected from cold winds and they thrive in warm and humid conditions. Growing conditions in home gardens vary substantially and will often determine the type of trees you can grow. Winter cold (chill factor), summer warmth (humidity and temperature) and the length of the frost-free season need to be considered. Many tropical fruits can be grown outside their ideal climate. We are constantly amazed by the fabulous home-orcharding success stories we hear from around Australia.
