Carambola (Star Fruit) in winter

A word from our customer:
I just wanted to let you know that the Dwarf Carambola Kari has survived last winter and turned into a nice bushy tree this summer.I have been trying to grow this tree forever it never survived winters here. Then last year you suggested me to plant Carambola in wind protected corner, so I picked a place next to the house,South side very close to the wall. I covered it several times with a sheet on windy days like you said. The tree did lose leaves during winter but it survived and established well. I had my first crop this year nearly 20 fruit!Just thought your other customers wanted to know keep it protected from winds this is the secret,it works! (M., Avon Park, FL)
