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.

  • Lemons taste like sweet lemonade
  • Guinness Stout beer tastes like chocolate milk
  • Even broccoli and cauliflower taste like sweet apples. 

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.

It's Easy to Plant your Miracle Berry Plant

Specific Directions for Miracle Berry Plant

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.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Miracle Berry Plant.

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.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

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.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

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.

Could not believe
I purchased my two plants because I did not believe there was a plant out there that could make everything sweet. Was I surprized ! The berries have no taste but do they work. We planted our plants in pots within 4 to 5 weeks we had berries. I picked one and poped one in my mouth. Thirty minutes later cut a lemon in half and licked it. I could not believe how it tasted like the best lemon aide I ever had. Sweet as could be. I would recommend these to everyone. I am very pleased with my plants. Since I bought them I have purchased a couple of types of trees from them .

I was a bit disappointed by the plant. The page says that the tree grows 1 foot per year, produces at 3 years, and their plants produce their first year (and boasts about how sizeable their plants are) so I was expecting a ~3 foot tree (if it fruits it's first season, it must be around 3 years, and should thus have grown about 3 feet.) but the plant is small, maybe 1 foot for the 2 gallon size I bought. No sizes were mentioned on the page so I was assuming, but given the numbers I think it was an educated assumption.The plant arrived in poor shape, with salt/hard water spots and burned/dying leaves. But, it's alive, and true to the advertising isn't a weak seedling at least like other nurseries sell, so that's worth something! Here's to hoping it survives and actually fruits this first season

Already Producing Fruit !!!
I purchased this little guy 6/22/2014
I wasn't expecting any fruit until next spring ... well, imagine my surprise a few weeks ago when I walked by and noticed a BRIGHT red berry!

In the past few weeks we've had 13 bright red ripe berries so far, waiting on 5 more to turn red.

They say it produces small white flowers which turn scarlet when bloomed - haven't seen any of those yet.

I planted this lil guy in a container, to bring indoors when it gets too cold outside. He's doing great and I haven't added fertilizer etc (just regular dirt from nursery, which has resulted in various grasses being grown in the container with him).

The tree was shipped a bit early, and cold hit. However, it has green leaves and only significant browning. None of the leaves dropped so I take it as a good sign. PLANT INSURANCE IS WORTH IT. with the slow growing miracle berry. Can't wait for it to bear fruit. Awesome plant!!

I ordered my plant on Wednesday and it arrived on Friday. Talk about fast service! I ordered the 2 foot plant and it came nicely packed in a cardboard box. The plant arrived healthy and beautiful! I haven't had a chance to taste a berry yet, but I can't wait after reading Hunter Engel's review

I purchased the 2-gallon Miracle Berry tree in August 2014. It is still looking healthy and green. It has grown fast. I replanted it in a huge container for my patio upon arrival. I have not had to removed but 1-2 leaves that were brown. I am so looking forward to this natural sweetener. :)

Amazing. Incredible. Absolute Awesomeness.
It's a total experience, it's a trip for your tongue. Everything taste incredible, especially lemons. Plants grow slow but steady but I have gotten a very high yield rate by placing them in a 5 gallon drum, mixing peat moss and soil 50/50 to lower the PH level. By next year I'll have more berries than I can eat. I give most berries to my friends because it totally blows peoples minds, and it's fun.

Very chalenging plant to grow
Tropical acid loving plants are a challenge for desert dwellers that have alkaline natural conditions. Our water and soil are normal at 7.5 ph or higher these need 5 ph! We also have frost here, in the winter tropical plants die when temps are as warm as the 50s. I now am required to find someone to with a southern exposure enclosure to tend this plant in the winter, buy a green house structure or suffer it's demise. With our dry conditions the plant has struggled but now is starting to flower.
My problem is not w the plant... It is upon my shoulders for making a difficult situation.

My 3 gal miracle Berry plant, purchased April 2013, has never blossomed. Can you tell me why this may be?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
Best Answer: I can't answer your question, but I can tell you that I've had the same problem. This plant is located in Northern California, and the thinking is that its too dry. After changing positions, adding water, reducing water, I've found that the best position is in partial shade, with lots of water. It is now seeing new growth, but has not produced fruit.

Good Luck!

It develops a nice green shaped bush and the all the leaves drop except about 5 at the top. Anyone have any ideas what to do I am about to give up , too much of the year I have a Charley Brown plant.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.





Potted Tree Dormant Tree Bare Root Tree

Some dormant trees

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning
Maple Tree before pruning Maple Tree after pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose before pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose after pruning

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
