Miracle Berry (Synsepalum dulcificum) live 4" Seedling
This listing is for ONE (1) Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) live SEEDLING grown in our Haiku, Maui Garden. Each seedling is about 4" high. Add this slow growing + highly container suitable fun little tree to your plant collection. I have been growing several of these plants in containers in a slightly shaded area of our garden for years now and they are still quite compact yet happy. Around 3 years old they will begin to 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!
PLEASE READ UP ON THE SOIL REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS PLANT. I have my plants growing in containers with a 50/50 Peat Moss with Perlite mix. I give them LOTS of left over/used Coffee grounds and they seem to LOVE it (so do my Gardenias + Blackberry Jam Fruit Bushes).
These are very slow growing plants. The bushes shown in the photos I from seeds and are about 4 years old and barely knee high.
All live plants ordered by Saturday evenings will ship the following Monday (after Hawaii state Agricultural inspection).
