I saw one for sale - about 5'@$79. I almost bought!

I've seen them growing in Hayward, Santa Clara and San Jose. They do need a protected spot in the Bay Area, though.

Your kidding me!..Where they with fruit?. I've never heard that with Starfruit. I like the crunchy apple flavor with a tropical touch.

My dad had one in San Jose which flowered; however, did not fruit. I've never seen one with fruit up there...however, you never know everyone who's growing them.

I saw several growing next to an inn close to the University of Santa Clara. It's been several years ago, though.
