Exotic Fruit Makes Everything Taste Sweet

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.

Wow.. this fruit has changed my life.. it has such a sweet taste to it and when it hits you its like BAM! What happened?? i think jesus just punched me in the face. This is truly the miracle of all fruit plants. I would reccomend this to all my friends and even people i dont care for very much.

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

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 .

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.

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).

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

Sad On Arrival
This little tree was sad from the minute I removed it from its packaging. It had lost some leaves and was droopy but overall seemed fine. I watered it well to make up for the time in transit, and placed it in a semi sunny location where it would not get too hot. Almost over night it lost all of its leaves but one! It's now transplanted in acidic soil, and that one leaf is still hanging on so I hope it will bounce back. I had hoped it would arrive healthier than it did, so that is where my rating comes from.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Miracle Berry Plant


Miracle Berry Plant Planting Diretions 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.

Amanda Z on Sep 9, 2016
Heard about this plant years ago and always wanted one. I could only find seeds to grow, not a full plant that is ready to fruit. Will be a lot of fun to try and see my friends faces when they try the fruit.
Rodney S on Jun 11, 2016
We love to have these with plain yoghurt and lemon juice and such + we have a couple of baby key lime trees, should be a fun combination when they both fruitâ?¦ The pills are super expensive so this should pay for itself quickly.

This was the first plant i ordered from FGT. I thought it seemed fun. The plant almost died the first year, it was real slow to thrive. It looks real good now but didn't get berries until last year and then just 2 berries.

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 have researched this, as I used to have the same problem. First, the miracle fruit plant requires acidic soil for fruiting (and thus blossoms too). pH 4.5-5.5 is ideal. Normal potting soil may allow the plant to survive, but it's pH is probably too high for this plant to fruit. Second, it likes warmth and humidity - this produces rapid growth. Third, if you can put the plant in PARTIAL shade on your deck, I would recommend it. Outside is GREAT for this plant as long as not a lot of direct sun. I've had LOTS of blossoms inside but no fruit (problem is it needs pollinators like wind, bugs, or bees). You can also try to "be the bee" yourself, and take the smallest most gentle paintbrush you can find and GENTLY brush the tiny blossoms. You can see the pollen. The blossoms have a wonderful pleasant fragrance. My mature tree went from making 4 berries to > 50 when I brought it outside for the hot/humid summer. Water a large amount, but not every day. Maybe twice a week in the hottest parts of the year. Once a week during regular times. It likes well-draining soil. DONT frequently soak this plant. Let it begin to have drier feeling soil before watering. It loves rainwater which is more acidic than tapwater. If you do use tapwater, fill a plastic jug and sit it uncovered in the sunlight for a day to eliminate the chlorine. And BTW, 3' is NOT the maximum height for this tree. Mine is in a container and is now just over 6'! I also don't prune, and my tree is doing alright.
What type of soil is ideal for this plant? Acidic?
Armypilot3 on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: An acidic soil. An organic potting soil for half, then perlite and sphagnum peat mixed together for the other half. Mix thoroughly.
I live in zone 4( MN) and I have this tree in a big planter. Do I leave it outside in the winter or should I bring it indoors? Thank you
Bonnie K on Jun 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I Bring my tree indoors any time it drops below the 50-45° mark . any colder than that permanent damage can happen to the tree
when is the best time to bring the miracle berry plant indoors? I live in zone 8. Ga.
Josiah on Oct 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend doing so prior to the first frost. Frost can seriously damage them.
I am a beekeeper and was wondering if I could count on them to aid with pollination of the miracle berry plant? They've done miracles for my herb garden
tymekurve on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While I can't be absolutely certain, I feel pretty confident in saying honeybees will help pollinate the miracle berry plant.

The reason I can't say for certain is because we are beekeepers too, and we had bees before the berry plant. Our bees seem to be all over the entire garden and I'm sure they have been on the berry plant, so they have undoubtedly carried pollen from one plant to another, and doing so is bound to help the pollination process. The one thing I can say for certain is this: The bees can only help; they can't hurt.
Are these plants organic?
Di H on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all fruit trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.
can you grow them indoors in northern vermont?
cyrus on Nov 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We live in Las Vegas NV so we had issues with humidity. We built a small grow environment lined with plastic and daytime lights in our laundry room. We water every other day with fertilized water And mist it with water daily. After a while we began seeing lots of flowers. As we figured out our system we now have 6-10 fruits available at almost anytime. If you have good light, humidity , and good fertilization it should work well for you too! It does take a while to get it right so don't give up! The look on your friends and family's faces when they try it makes it all worth it!
Can the fruit be frozen and how much is needed to taste the effects of the fruit?
Gary H on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes this fruit can easily be frozen, and just a berry or two is needed to make sour things taste sweet; the effect lasts 15-20 minutes. To freeze: Put the berries into a strainer and rinse with cool water. Let it drain and spread the berries evenly over a baking sheet. Place in the freezer under the blower overnight, then put the frozen berries into plastic bags. They will keep up to 6 months.
I'm planning on buying one for my home in southern jersey. Do I need to keep it inside at all times or just for the winter and fall?
Lancelot V on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can keep them outdoors in the Spring and Summer, then move them indoors for the winter.
