Carambola, or starfruit, has a nice long fruiting season. Unfortunately we lost most of this year’s starfruit crop due to Hurricane Irma—- starfruit is not a very wind-tolerant tree, and we had to strip the fruit and a lot of the foliage before the big blow. Farmin’ ain’t easy! But this Fwang Tung, NW-C-8, is a vigorous grower and producer, and still managed this nice little late-season crop.
