- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Starfruit trees (Averrhoa carambola) are very attractive, with curving branches and large masses of lilac-purple blossoms that attract pollinators. They are grown for their ornamental value as well as their star-shaped fruits.
- The mature fruits are about 5 to 7 inches long and turn from bright olive-green to warm bright yellow when fully ripe. The skin is shiny and can be left on the fruit when eaten. The fruits seem to combine the flavors of several other fruits including kiwi, pineapple, berries, and grapes.
- The fruit is juicy with a consistency like firm green grapes and is used throughout Southeast Asia in dishes and beverages.
- Growing up to 30 feet tall, starfruit trees are covered with glossy leaves in summer followed by pendulous fruits. There are two main types of starfruit grown commercially: the smaller sour fruits (including 'Golden Star,' 'Star King, and 'Newcomb," all grown in Florida), and the larger sweet ones ('Arkin,' 'Maha' and 'Dmak' grown in Florida, Malaysia, and Indonesia respectively).
- If your growing zone isn't warm enough to grow starfruit trees outdoors, you can try growing dwarf trees in containers, to be overwintered indoors. The best varieties for container growing are known as 'Hawaiian Dwarf' and 'Maher Dwarf.' These trees grow to a maximum height of 3 feet and are perfect for an indoor setting.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
