Exotic Fruit Makes Everything Taste Sweet

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

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 like to 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.

Self-Fruiting
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.

You'll Receive Your Miracle Fruit Quickly With Our Plants
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.





Miracle Berry Plant Pollination

Miracle Berry Plant are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Miracle Berry Plant will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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.

Norman, OK
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

i HAD ONE ON MY TOUNGUE FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES AND i PROCEEDED IN EATING A LEMON AND A SOUR GRAPFRUIT LIKE IF IT WAS SWEET PINEAPPLE.

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

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 rot 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.

Tips:
*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.

Can the fruit be frozen and how much is needed to taste the effects of the fruit?
Gary H on Jun 30, 2015

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 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.
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!
