    This listing is for FIVE (5) Starfruit SEEDS grown in our Haiku, Maui garden.  Our 25+ year old Starfruit tree, shown in listing photos, is a 'Kari' variety.

    We ship these fresh seeds wet packed in damp paper toweling inside a sealed plastic baggie.  The key to keeping seedlings alive is 75-85 degree temps., bright but not direct light needed, and never letting them dry out.  A water bottle on 'spray' or 'mist' mode a few times a day will keep your seedlings alive.  

    Please plan on researching how to grow this wonderful tasting and looking tropical fruit in your specific area.  ****written growing instructions are not offered with or after you receive your fresh Maui seeds safely*****

    The pretty purple Starfruit blossoms quickly form into unique ridged football shaped fruits. The flowers can be used as garnish in salads and the Starfruit itself is fun to cut sideways into thin slices so that you can admire their unique star shape. Try garnishing a drink with a slice of Starfruit instead of a lemon wedge.   Children seem to like to eat the fruit whole, perfect for 'out of hand' eating, like an apple.A
