Orders that are shipped to the western US can often take 4 to 6 business days for transport, including the delay of agricultural inspections in Arizona, California & Texas. Please note that the quality of tender young plants is more affected by the extra length of stress inside shipping boxes. Extra care is taken during packaging to ensure quick recovery after unboxing.  Often plants need extra care for the first few weeks after transport.  Please review our policy on returns & refunds for more information, as well as our plant care guide.

Product Details

Starfruit - Fwang Tung (Averrhoa carambola) - Live Plant

Ships in a 1 Gallon Pot

This Thai variety is known for it's high quality flavor, that sweetness resembles a melon, and is also known for being a productive tree. It's named "Starfruit" because when you cut its fruit horizontally is has a shape of a star. If you pick the fruit before it is ripe it will still turn yellow, however the fruit is its sweetest when left to ripen on the tree. Starfruit tend to like dappled light and cannot tolerate wind. Though they are a subtropical tree they are able to tolerate short periods of frost. Like other grafted trees we recommend planting high and tight.

Our Favorite Uses: Fresh off the tree

*Shipping Plants:
-Stress- Shipping can cause stress to a plant, mostly because it spends a few days in a dark stuffy box. Most plants survive with no problems or with a minimal stress (some leaf drop may occur), and recover quickly others may require extra love and attention with watering and gentle light after unboxing. Please refer to the Care Sheet inside your order- upon unboxing.
-Physical damage- Sometimes a carrier may damage boxes during handling or they are damaged due to weather, If this is the case please Contact UPS customer service right away to start an insurance claim and then email nursery@greendreamsfl.com with your claim number.
It does not happen often as we try to pack your plants with extra special attention but unfortunately there are some things beyond our control. In cases of serious damage, only the carrier can be responsible for it- so please contact the carrier within 30 days to start a claim. If it's just a broken branch or even part of a stem - just let it grow, take care of your plant and it will respond to your love. We understand your frustration if damage occurs, and strive to do everything we can on our end to minimize all damage and stress on the plant.
