How to Grow Star Fruit from Seed?

Answer

Carambolas do best in a frost-free location. They are tolerant of wind except for those that are hot and dry. The tree needs full sun. The carambola is not too particular as to soil, but will grow faster and bear more heavily in rich loam. It prefers a moderately acid soil (pH 5.5 - 6.5) and is sensitive to waterlogging. The plant often becomes chlorotic in alkaline soils.
