Carambola Starfruit - Arkin

My mother grew them when I was a teenager, & I just love the quirky shape. My husband often takes a home made fruit salad to work for his lunch, & the reason I chose these trees was to add a lovely flavour & interesting shapes to the mix. Both trees I purchased were planted straight away into pots, to get them started. They were very wilted looking for many, many weeks, but just recently I noticed both have a multitude of new shoots sprouting - so it's very exciting. Thank you.
