- Even broccoli and cauliflower taste like sweet apples

Various Valuable Assets:

- Mothers use them to introduce new vegetables to their children
- They're a great tool for anyone looking to reduce their calorie intake
- Some throw Miracle Berry parties where everyone samples a variety of foods
- They make for a unique, thoughtful gift

Improves Appetite for Chemotherapy Patients
Patients undergoing diabetes treatment or chemotherapy often suffer from a lack of appetite. The treatments tend to cause either a total lack of taste - or a metallic taste. Miracle Berries have been credited as a "true miracle" for patients who were heading toward malnourishment because the taste and smell of food made them nauseous. Because the berries take away the metallic taste, food simply tastes better.

Grows indoors or out
This plant 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.

Get Miracle Fruit Quickly.  Order now.
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.

New Leaves Developing In Winter
It arrived promptly and looking fine, replete with abundant leaves. I repotted it immediately and located it on our sun porch, with supplemental grow lighting on cloudy days. Although the sun porch is left below 60F often, the plant is developing healthy new leaves and has not lost any with which it arrived. I can hardly wait to see it thrive outdoors, from late spring.

Excellent company to do business with.
This is a delayed review. I waited and monitored the health of my plant. I purchased the 3 gallon size, right off the bat. The first shipment, the box arrived mangled and the plant was partially poking out of a smashed up box. They re-sent me another one, and the package was built like a fortress. Plant arrived, no broken limbs. Some leaves were yellow, and quite a few fell off over time. I expected this, given the time in transit.

As soon as it arrived, I transplanted it into a large container with some acid loving fertilizer mix I had leftover from when i was growing blueberries and I give it an ACR fertilizer. 2 months have passed since it arrived at my doorstep, and it's producing multiple berries. I'm so happy with the plant, and the outstanding service from the people at Fastgrowingtrees. I'll edit my review later, once I get a photo of my plant.

For anyone wondering, I live in Northern California, and it's doing extremely well. You just need to make sure you acclimate it, and harden it gradually to the strong sun exposure. Protect it during the hot summer by partially shading. My advice for others trying to grow this plant, is to do your research and make sure you do not leave this plant sitting around in its delivered container unwatered and in the dark. Get it transplanted and watered asap.

Order big for free shipping, buy warranty!
I ordered the $45 size along with the 2 root booster upsells, and the $5 1 year guarantee. The plant looked poor upon opening, and died within 10 days. I called them up and they kindly gave me a $45 gift certificate. I re-ordered the larger $99 size with free shipping, I didn’t purchase the root boosters but I did again, get the warranty. Plant is growing happily this time around! No berries yet. Will definately order plants again.
Immediately after receiving and planting. No dead leaves, soil was still moist.
Brought it inside under my grow light since it’s still cold at night. New growth sprouting up.

Thank you for following. The tree arrived in a very good condition looked healthy and happy.I am in Piedmont South Carolina so the only possible way was for me to put it in the big container and grow it as such.The plant is doing very well,tries to set some flowers.I am very pleased with the product, maybe for some the price would be high,but considering the iniquness and slow growth of miracle plant the price is ok. From my current experience I will recommend this company and of course this plant,thank you

Planting & Care

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

Miracle Berry Plant Planting Diretions

With the Miracle Berry (Synsepalum dulcificum) get ready to enjoy lovely white flowers and the incredible fruit that aptly gave it the name it so deserves. What else would you call a fruit that seems to make everything you eat taste sweet? Even lemons! The Miracle Berry is a partial sun lover commonly grown outdoors in USDA growing zones 9-11 but can also be successfully container grown and kept indoors in the colder seasons. The berry bush reaches a mature height of about 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide which means it does not take up a lot of space.

Choosing a location:  Place your Miracle Fruit in a location with filtered sunlight, or partial shade. If potting, choose a decorative container and place it next to a sunny window in your favorite room for container grown plants. When the weather warms up, move your Miracle Berry outdoors as long as temperatures remain above 50 degrees. Provide rich soil, with lots of organic matter and watch this Miracle perform.

Planting Instructions (in ground):
1) Make your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
2) Carefully remove the berry bush from its container. Tap the sides of the pot to help release any clinging particles/roots.
3) Place the bush in the hole and carefully back fill, tamping down the soil as you go to eliminate air pockets.
4) Water the area to settle the soil and then mulch to retain soil moisture.
*Do not let the plant sit in wet soil! Root rot can set in quite easy if the roots are left in any standing water.

Planting direction (potted):
1) Plant your Miracle Berry in a container using an acidic soil. Go 1-2 pot sizes larger than what the plant initially came in. Drainage is essential so make sure there are lots of drainage holes on the bottom.
2) Aim for around a 5.0 soil pH with your potting medium and lightly tap down on the soil as you fill in the open potting space.
3) Do not over-water the plant. Make sure the surface soil is dry to the touch before adding more water.
4) Add a water soluble fertilizer and follow the application directions on the label. Use sparingly but increase frequency in the summer months.
5) Try to achieve an environment close to your Miracle Berry’s native tropical climate.  Increase humidity around the plant as necessary. This can be done by misting the leaves once a week with a water spray bottle or plant mister.
6) When the roots take up the entire container it’s time to transplant your Miracle Berry. Move the plant into a slightly larger container using more soil to fill in the extra space. Make sure the plant remains at the same depth it was in the previous container.
*Tip: If the edges of the root ball feel dense to the touch along the wall of the pot it is time to move up a container size.

Watering:  Take care not to over water which can lead to root rot and other problems. Be sure that your soil dries between watering the plant. Use your index finger and stick into the soil down to a depth of about 2 inches. feel around for moisture and if it feels dry, give it some water. If the touch still feels moist, hold off on watering a bit longer.

Fertilization: Miracle Fruit plants will accept a whole host of fertilizers and as long as the proper pH is accomplished, it will do well. Apply to recommended levels on the packaging.

Pests:  Scale can be a common challenge but is easily controlled.  A simple remedy is to use a mixture containing 10 drops of dish soap in 2 cups of water.   Add some cinnamon extract and bye bye scale.

*Miracle Fruit also does best in humid conditions, so avoid dry-air conditions when possible. A clear plastic bag placed over the plant can help maintain a suitable humidity level if the ambient humidity is low.
*Flowering and fruiting will increase by ensuring soil contains an acidic mixture of half sphagnum peat moss and half perlite.
Dress the area above the root ball of the Miracle Berry with an acid-forming mulch like pine bark or coffee grounds at a depth of 1 to 4 inches.

I have been wanting to try the miracle berry ever since I heard about it several years ago. This is the first time I have ever come across the plant. If it does what everyone says, then there is NO excuse for healthy eating. My plan is to increase my intake of fresh greens via juicing. I'll be taking a miracle berry first. :)

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: NO!!!... Miracle Fruitntrees can not take freezing temperatures for more than a couple hours. The would need to be brought inside. I would also recommend using a quality 5500K grow light while it is inside. On our farm in central Florida we get fruit production most of the year. Leo P.
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.

Are these plants animal friendly?
Tawny on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: From the research that I have done they are not toxic to animals.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
What color are the berries when ripe ?
Ruth D on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: bright red
