Popular commercial variety, very heavy cropper of uniform very sweet juicy firm flesh with few seeds. Fruit 100mm in length with small wings and bright yellow skin. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit and are excellent fresh or juiced. They 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

My father was Morris Arkin. He developed the Arkin Carombola in our backyard in Coral Gables FL. He was originally was a stock broker for 30 years with no background in horticulture. He also developed a soft shell macadamia nut. Such wonderful memories!
