Only young, planted October 2009.  Seems to be quite thirsty though it does get some western sun which may account for it.  Growing strongly at this stage.

Still growing strongly.  Maybe some fruit this year.

I absolutely love fresh starfruit and I am attempting to provide a micro climate for it. Although this plant was knocked around when we received 3 days in a row over 40 degrees, I have nurtured it and it is still doing pretty well considering it is still small. The winter didn't seem to worry it too much although I did protect it from the frost.

I wonder if it is staying too wet in the tree bag so have now re-potted in plastic pot with feet off the ground.
