Buy a carambola star-fruit tree in our Web Shop

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.
