flora-Australia-10: Id pl- a medium size tree in the Sydney uni campus and at many places around,
maybe cultivated for gardens.
Is it some species of Prunus??
I think so but not sure about the sp.
Not carambola…its fruits look like carambola from day 1, since the ovary is star shaped in cross section, can even have the anther attached to its top even when tiny and when sepals and petals have just fallen off…. the “fruits” (if they are fruits and not flower buds ) are like any pit bearing fruit…peach may be…
We have several here in the Hort garden… and we had to study them in one of our amateurs’ classes a few years ago…
DO WE HAVE ANY COLD WEATHER FRUIT EXPERT IN EFLORA?
These are definitely not flower-buds.In prime flowering time the branches are fully laden with blooms.Was lucky to find a few last flowers of the season.Have given one more photo.Hope it will be useful.
If they are not flower buds, then this tree defenitely is not carambaola…since your tree’s “fruits” are round in circumferential ouline and not star shaped…
Does not look like Averhoa carambola to me. Here are my pictures of A carambola.
If all photographs of … belong to same tree, then definitely it is not peach. The leaves of 4th photograph do look like Apricot, 2nd photograph could well be young fruits of apricot, but not the flower in first photograph which looks cauliflorous.
