Miracle Berry (Synsepalum dulcificum)
This listing is for ONE (1) Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) SEED grown in Maui, Hawaii. Add this slow growing + highly container suitable fun little tree to your plant collection. Have the enjoyment of growing your Miracle Berry plant from a seed. We have been growing several of these plants in containers in a slightly shaded area of our garden for years now. They are still quite compact yet happy. Around 3 years old they will produce bright red berries for you. The fruit contains 'miraculin' which bonds with your taste buds to disguise any sour food that you eat afterwards (for about an hour) making it taste sweet!
THERE IS ONE (1) CLEANED/NO PULP SEED PER PACKET. We suggest GERMINATING your fresh/live seed indoors INSIDE the SEALED BAGGIE it will arrive in. Your seed will be shipped in damp paper toweling in a sealed plastic baggie. Listing price includes shipping + Hawaii State Agricultural Inspection.
PLEASE READ UP ON THE SOIL REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS VERY SLOW GROWING container suitable PLANT. We have our plants growing in containers with a 50/50 Peat Moss with Perlite mix. We also give them LOTS of left over/used Coffee grounds and they seem to love it (so do our Gardenias + Blackberry Jam Fruit Bushes).
These are very slow growing plants. The bushes shown in the photos are grown from seed and are about 8 years old and barely knee high.
