This easy-to-grow fruiting tree will flower and fruit once it reaches a height of 1 1/2-2', often within the first year. Small clusters of lilac-colored flowers bloom intermittently year-round followed by fruit, which ripens to a golden yellow usually within 3-4 months. Then the magic happens: slice the fruit in half and a beautiful 5-pointed star is discovered. As a bonus, the fruit from this dwarf tree is as sweet as that which comes from the larger trees. Grow in full sun in any well-drained potting mix with moderate amounts of fertilizer during the active growing season. Our grafted 'Maher Dwarf' plant has improved vigor and will produce fruit year after year. The pictured Dwarf Star Fruit is a 2 year-old tree.

I bought this tree back in early May as I wanted a star fruit tree and never found a place that had them and did not want to pay extreme prices for what is online. Here it is early sept and it had grown a lot. Flowered and has fruit setting. (Posted on 9/3/2014)
