This easy-to-grow fruiting tree will flower and fruit once it reaches a height of 1 1/2-2', often within the first year. Small clusters of lilac-colored flowers bloom intermittently year-rounbd followed by fruit, which ripens to a golden yellow usually within 3-4 months. Then the magic happens: slice the fruit in half and a beautiful 5-pointed star is discovered. As a bonus, the fruit from this mini tree is as sweet as that which comes from the larger trees. Grow in full sun in any well-drained potting mix with moderate amounts of fertilizer during the active growing season and 'Maher Dwarf' will produce fruit year after year.
