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.

    Carambola trees are budding.

    Just to give an update on my Carambola trees. I'm so happy to share that the trees are budding and looking good. I can't wait to put them in the ground once the weather starts to warm up. I ordered another tree from this company and will order more. Thanks again FGT. Highly recommended!

    Starfruit tree

    This is my favorite fruit tree. This tree arrived safe and looked healthy with leaves coming out from all the branches. However, within a week, it lost all its leaves and making me very anxious because it’s supposed to be an ever green one. I’ve replanted it and keeping it in a sunny location. I hope it revives back soon.

    Love my Starfruit "Carambola" trees.

    I received my trees although they've lost their leaves, which is expected due to stressed from the shipment. As this moment, they're budding out, so I'm very happy😊 Carambola are tough tropical trees. They're so tall and I can't wait to see them fruiting soon. Thank you FGT staff. Vanessa, your staff provide me an excellent customer service, so I want to thank her the whole FGT team for an awesome customer service. Highly recommended!

    This tree is growing well.

    This tree is growing well. Tree has not produced yet. However, I have been eating starfruit for a while now for its heart healthy qualities. I am awaiting the fruits season.

    First tree was fried in the 100 degree heat and because the FEDX guys delivered it upside down with no dirt in the pot....but you replaced it and the second tree is great Thank you so much.
