This listing is for ONE (1) live Blackberry Jam Fruit Plant (Randia formosa) PLANT. Add this fun plant with exquisite tasting fruit to your plant collection. Offered in a 6" or a 12" sized plant, grown from seed in our Maui garden. Live plants ship bare root/no soil standard USPS mail on Mondays. Please read up on how to grow this plant in your area. We do offer a few 'gardening tips' with this listing description.
When in season, we also offer this easy to grow SEEDS of this plant, please see that separate listing.
The flowers of the Blackberry Jam Plant/Randia formosa form into small fruits. The petite snowy white flowers remind me of tiny Gardenia blossoms. The flowers will produce small green fruits. Once the fruit matures and turns yellow you can open it up and find the Blackberry 'jam' inside.
These plants stay neat and compact and seem very happy growing in containers or the garden. We have a special area in our garden with a grouping of these plants (shown in the photos). We give our Randia formosa acid loving plants in containers a 50/50 mix of perlite and peat moss. Make sure that they never dry out and also give them cold coffee grounds and left over cold coffee as much as possible. Once the seeds have grown into plants with a good root system they are planted in a garden bed.
PLEASE READ UP/RESEARCH HOW TO GROW THESE PLANTS IN YOUR AREA. Tropical plants must be kept warm at all times.
All live plants ordered by Saturdays will ship standard USPS mail on Mondays (after Hawaii state Agricultural inspection).
