This Star Fruit has bright yellow-orange fruit that is slightly elongated and pointed. The flesh is juicy and firm with few seeds. Flavour rich and sweet; excellent dessert quality. 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
Other Names: Carambola, Starfruit, star

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.
