Starfruit Tree

Click on the photo for clearer view.

My hubby managed to get a pot of star fruit tree that is already bearing fruits, in a pot. The flowers are lovely but very small. Now a days, they are selling miniature fruit tress in pots. Lovely. The first batch of fruits, the one at the bottom on its own, manage to grow into a size of a normal starfruit, about the size of my palm. After that it kept blooming almost every month, but the fruits won't stick very long. It will drop before it grows full size. Now we planted it in the ground.

Guess it would not really grow well in a pot. Wishful thinking. We just couldn't resist. Trees look so cute in pots rather then the normal gigantic fruit tress. My husband's aunt manage to grow green apples in pot. The fruit is just the size of a ping pong ball. It is really crunchy but tasteless. At least it is edible. Gosh I didn't get a snap shot of it. Maybe the next visit.

Happy gardening and thanks for reading. Happy mothers day to all mummy out there.
