Hi there.i bought a Grafted Carambola Kary but the top Graft died. The rootstock has now shot out and it looks the same like the Carambola. Will it produce fruit one day without the Grafted bit? Thanks for helping

The rootstock will be a seedling and will all too often give poor fruit. You could graft a good one on to it, but probably best to chop it out and plant a new grafted tree.

Hi Gabriele - whats growing still looks to me above graft but if the plant was mine would put dragonfruit in a separate 300mm pot with a free draining potting mix and the Starfruit in a similar pot with a similar free draining premium mix - your soil to me doesnt look great - looks old and mucky - something sub tropicals hate - Im amazed it got thru winter - when you repot you will see what state roots are in and as its warming up will recover alot better too.

It looks to be above the graft to me too. Geeze, the carambola really wants to get to the top of the to get some sunlight. Maybe it's time to tip the top off for it to branch out ?

I agree, the new shoot is above the graft. Likes full sun and water. Best in the ground. I have a Kary variety from seed. It is amazing how it tolerates the cold and hot weather in Perth. I trimmed mine because it was getting over the fence. Since it threw out a lot of upright shoots {water shoots?} Not sure if I will get as many fruits this season. Fruits were very sweet and juicy. Bought a Siam. I will see if I get some fruits this season. It is out in the open in the ground but winter did not worry it. Best fruits to grow in terms of fruit flies. Fruits mature during the cold months and no fruit fly attacks.
