Carambola and bilimbi

The plants and fruits of carambola (Averrhoa carambola) and bilimbi (A. bilimbi) and their cultivars are described. The required soil and climatic conditions, propagation, cultural practices (including land preparation, irrigation, fertilizers, pruning, and weed, pest and disease control), harvesting, handling and storage are discussed briefly.
