Here’s Why the Star Fruit Tree is a Top Performer:
A Star is born in your Garden
If you’ve been searching for a new star among the fruit trees in your garden or landscape, we’ve found it for you. Introducing the Star Fruit Tree: A compact evergreen that combines a handsome tree with a delicious and unusual fruit. The tree is lush and woody, with delicate lavender flowers that add to the tree’s overall beauty. And the fruit itself enhances the overall exotic look.
Its shiny, pale-orange coloring and convex shape appear like numerous sunbursts throughout the tree. The box-like fruit hang like small beacons, adding warmth and charm to any garden or landscape lucky enough to boast this incredible tree.
The Taste is Star Quality
Cut open a fresh, juicy Star Fruit and you’ll know right away how it got its name. Cross section slices reveal the unique star shape--a favorite among kids who will love the way it looks as well as the sweet yet faintly sour taste which is unlike any other fruit.
The distinctive flavor has hints of apple, pear, grape and a mild tartness that is all its own. This symphony of flavors makes fruit salads taste fresher and more satisfying than ever before. You can also use Star Fruit as a garnish or even cooked in puddings and stews. With the Star Fruit, the sky’s the limit to the meals you will enjoy.

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Starfruit Tree.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Starfruit Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Starfruit Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
