Giant Siam Starfruit tree

    5 responses

Kam starts with ...
Hi, Would someone be able to help me with some questions please? I have planted a Giant Siam Starfruit tree more than a year ago. About 3 mtrs I have a B10 Starfruit tree. When they start to fruit what size fruits will I get from my Giant Siam? Will they be smaller like between a Giant Siam and a B10. Will it be better to shift one tree to another spot?

I have those 2 varieties.Giant siam can have huge fruit on healthy well fertilised trees in full sun.If the question is about tree size then both can get huge but are smaller outside of the tropics.They can be pruned to 2.5m tall and wide quite easily.

Hi Mike Tr
Thanks for the reply. I am wondering if the 2 trees of different varieties are grown next to each other and cross pollination takes place, will my Giant Siam tree bears small fruits? If so, I will need to move the B10 which has smaller fruits to another area in the garden. I would really like the bigger fruits to stay big. I will be happy if you can answer this. Thank you.

The fruit will be entirely dependent on the mother (ie the tree it grows on). The next generation might be different.

It would be like having an avocado (say Hass, A) fertilised by a different (usually B, eg Shephard) avocado. The fruit is purely Hass, but the seed could throw an A or a B.

No the mother tree develops the fruit and crossed seeds influence the next generation.
