Doreen,
At ECHO in Ft. Myers, FL (www.echonet.org), they have a rooftop gardening
area, where many plants are grown on a concrete pad in various and sundry
containers.  Including carambola trees in trucktire planters.  Fruit on
trees about 4-5 feet.

Agreed that the grafted and named trees are better, but most of the seedling
fruit pretty good as well.

Recommended course I heard was to plant out the seedlings, then graft the
best flavored ones onto the roots of the ones less so.
