Growing and harvesting

Carambolas grow on trees with a short trunk and a branched, spreading
canopy. A carambola tree starts producing fruit after about two to three years and can be harvested for several decades. Carambola fruits are harvested when they weigh between 95 and 120 g. The tree bears fruit all year round and can produce a very high volume of fruit. Each harvest lasts about two weeks. The fruits are carefully picked by hand and placed in baskets. At the packing station, the carambolas are cleaned and graded for size and quality. Afterwards, the fruits are packed and transported to the Netherlands.
