Star Fruit: Kari vs. Fwang Tung
« on: December 01, 2019, 09:05:19 PM »
Hey

I am planning on planting a Kari carambola tree.  As they are so prolific I was reluctant to plant a 2nd variety unless justified.  Is Fwang Tung unique enough and good enough to also justify planting as well?

Thanks. : )
Blessed be the man who plants a tree knowing he will never live to enjoy it's fruit or shade.

Fwang Tung is one of the best for taste and it looks quite different from most have broader,wavy wings and it tastes alright green.

I have a Fwang Tung, more than 20 years grafted, 7 meters high by 5 meters wide, prolific, sweet, no oxalic acid, no seeds, for me, the best.
