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/One Year Old. Add this slow growing + highly container suitable fun little tree to your plant collection. We have 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. We give ours 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 container suitable plants. The bushes shown in the photos are grown from seeds kept in containers-they are about 10-12 years old and barely knee high.
