Star Fruit ‘Maher Dwarf’ (Averrhoa carambola)
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.

  1. Fruit Already Review by Rob
    How do you rate this product?

    Wow. I got fruit already! It's only one, but still, it's not even in a really large pot. I have it in the standard 5 gal nursery pot that you usually get trees in. I'm not sure it's going to get all that big, but it's amazing that it's fruited already. (Posted on 11/12/2017)

  2. A stand out Review by Tracey
    How do you rate this product?

    I am very impressed! There are literally 30 star fruit in various stages of growth on my tree right now. This is the second summer - the difference maker this year has been full sun and 7-9-5 fertilizer. It has a graceful, attractive shape. My "non-dwarf" version has not done as well for me. Highly recommend. (Posted on 8/1/2017)

  3. Great plant for container. Low care. Review by Kikapoo
    How do you rate this product?

    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 9/4/2014)
