Don't Wait Years to Enjoy Miracle Berries! Our large plants produce their 1st season.
Miracle Berries have become increasingly popular throughout the United States. Once you chew the tasteless berry, it's juice coats your tongue. Everything you eat for the next two hours tastes sweet.
Our customers use them in many different ways. Some like to throw Miracle Berry parties, where everyone samples a variety of foods. Some like to give the berries as gifts. Mothers use them to introduce new vegetables to their children. Patients undergoing diabetes treatment or chemotherapy use it to improve the taste of food.
Makes a perfect house plant. Grows indoors or out. Requires only partial sunlight and occasional watering. Prefers acidic soil and loves containers. It grows almost 1 foot each year, reaching a height of 3 ft. at maturity. The bright red berries catch attention against the deep green foliage. You get to enjoy fruit for most of the year.
Your plant produces small, white flowers, which are followed by vivid scarlet blooms. It's self-pollinating indoors. However, you will see even more berries if you set your plant outside and let the wind and bees do their work.
We grow your plant longer, so it typically fruits the very first season. Most nurseries sell tiny, delicate, starter plants that can take 2 years to fruit. Seed can take 3 years. We did all the waiting so you don't have to. These larger sizes do sell out, so please order while they are still available.
Place your Miracle Berry Plant in an area that receives partial shade or filtered sunlight. Miracle Berry Plants don't enjoy full sunlight. Make sure that your Miracle Berry plant doesn't sit in a low area that collects standing water. Plant your Miracle Berry Plants about two feet apart for a hedge. Miracle Berry plants prefer acidic soil. Test your soil with a pH meter. A pH balance ranging from 4.5 - 6.0 will be best. Add Peat Moss or Perlite to your soil to make it more acidic. Let your soil dry to the touch between waterings. Miracle Berry Plants are very drought tolerant and only need water during times of drought. Every Spring test your soil and fertilize your Miracle Berry Plant based of your soil's nutritional needs. For example, if your soil needs to be more acidic, use an acidic fertilizer. Miracle Berry Plants tolerate many different fertilizer types. Miracle Berry Plants flower and produce fruit year around. After the white flowers on your plant have been pollinated Miracle Berries emerge. It takes about six to eight weeks for Miracle Berries to ripen. Your Miracle Berries will be ready to be picked when they turn from green to a vibrant red color.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Miracle Berry Plant.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Miracle Berry Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Miracle Berry Plant again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
