Excellent flavour, bright skin and juicy flesh with few seeds, bearing a summer and winter crop. It exhibits more cold tolerance than other varieties. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit 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

SUNNYBANK HILLS, QLD, Australia

Ours are pretty much as good as you get. Satisified with the quality of the tree with high yields. Fruit is bland in flavour, but that is the same with all Carambolas.

Not very old, lost most of its leaves due to transport shock from Kyogle I'd say but putting on lots of new growth in spring, hopefully its warm enough in Sydney.Put on some very solid growth over summer. Has already started to flower in autumn.

I think my tree would have done better if it was in a less windy position.  I am surprised it has not died from the gusty winds.  Had a few fruits 2 years ago but they did not have enough time to grow and mature properly before it gets too cold.  I ...

Bought this plant from Daleys years ago. It achieved about 1.5 spindly metres growth, and then nearly died from frost, due to our marginal growing conditions. It held on, and, this year, has become very much more lush in appearance and looks like a st...

I dont mind the fruit, and the flowers are lovely when they smother the brances. i had to move this plant during the wet in 2010-11 floods. It handles transplanting quite well and is powering away in new spot, putting on lots of flowers summer 2011
