RARE Starfruit Tree (Bell Variety) – 5 cuttings MASSIVE SWEET FRUIT. Shipped with USPS First Class Package. Purchased the original tree from Excalibur in Fort Walton Beach, Florida WORKS WELL FOR CONTAINER CULTURE AND WILL FRUIT GENEROUSLY I have four starfruit trees in my orchard. As for size and sweetness, Bell is the winner by far. It is sweeter than a Kary and is HUGE. Absolutely beautiful fruit too — think of a GIANT Kary but with more uniformity. The fruit load is very generous but not quite as crazy prolific as Kary (which produces far smaller fruit.). Bell produces some BIG BOYS. They are also GREAT TASTING. I love this fruit. OMG They can be massive. ** make sure to fertilize with Osmocote when the tree is fruiting heavily and if possible, add some chelated iron too. The leaves will begin to look yellowed (chlorotic) but this is normal because of the energy expenditure required to produce these monster fruit. After fruiting, the tree just returns to it’s normal pretty green. ** Anyway, I’ll provide five cuttings from the mother tree. They easily root with a bit of scraping the end cambium and applying some rooting hormone. Very tough tree. It will grow quickly and likely produce fruit in the 2nd year. Believe it or not, it will take a short freeze too with minimal damage. I’m talking a very short freeze; otherwise protect it. It’s a subtropical. Bell is almost universally acknowledged as a top tier star fruit; however it is very difficult to find considering it is a Florida creation. ** I only have a single Bell tree (no more room since I have nearly 180 fruit trees in my orchard/garden.) Because of this, cuttings will be limited for this variety **
