Averrhoa carambola or star apple is a strikingly shaped yellow fruit. It has the shape of a star with five points.
The taste of this fruit is fresh / sour and is widely used on pastries, etc.
Can also be eaten raw. Vitamins are sufficient, especially oxalic acid, vitamin A and citric acid. Is also used and is very suitable for making a good chutney.

The tree is normally 6 to 9 meters high in the open ground, is a small well branched full tree.
However, it is not hardy and will be kept in a tub with us. This limits growth.
Shape pruning is also possible to tailor the Averrhoa carambola.
The carambola flowers with white / pink flowers with a purple heart in the armpit of the leaves. The star apple gives its first fruits 5 years after sowing.

Normally the star apple blooms almost the whole year and also gives fruit all year round. With us this will not be the case during the winter months.
Adult trees can carry up to 300 kg of fruit.
Winter hardiness zone 10b (+ 2ºC).
