Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees > Carambola Star Fruit > Carambola Starfruit - Daleys Sweet Gold
A very sweet, juicy selection that produces an abundant crop of medium sized fruit. Hard to surpass the flavour of this Daleys Nursery selection. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit and are excellent eaten fresh or juiced. 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
