Carambola or Star Fruit in general

Carambola or "star fruit" is a tropical evergreen tree native to Java and Southern Asia. Its height varies from 3-5 m (10-16 ft), with leaves of 8-18 cm (3-7 ") along the stems and short inflorescences. The fruits grow in bunches all over the tree, its shape is a star of 5 points, elliptical, 10x5 cm (4x2 "), yellow-orange when rip. Averrhoa carambola has a thin and waxy skin, with a mild, sweet to acid flesh that is translucent, succulent, soft and crisp. It is available from mid-summer to mid-winter, mostly eaten fresh or in fruit salads and as garnish. Less ripped fruit is best pickled and used in preserves and chutneys. Contains vitamins A and C, phosphorous and potassium.

We ship worldwide plants of variable height, 40-80 cm tall. We will always try to select a robust potted plant for you, compact enough to fit in the box. Carambolas are fast growers. Sometimes they are too tall, even above 1 m . We will prune them to a reasonable size of about 50-70 cm (including pot). They might look a bit ugly but they have good stems and will soon sprout new growth. Carambolas can shed leaves for a short time in winter-spring, so don't be scared if the tree is leafless in these months.
