Pollination Info

Barbados 'Acerola' Cherry Pollination

Barbados 'Acerola' Cherrys are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Barbados 'Acerola' Cherry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Start by selecting a spot that is at least ten feet away from other trees. Make sure the spot is in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and the soil will not retain moisture for any extended period of time.

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree, back fill the soil, tamp down and water to settle the roots. Spread a layer of mulch around the surrounding soil to preserve moisture.

If you're container planting, select a pot that's about 18 to 24 inches (15 to 25 gallon pot) and around 20 inches in height. A thin layer of gravel on the bottom of the pot will guarantee good drainage. Plant your tree, then place near a South-facing window for best results.

2. Watering: Young trees will need to be watered regularly. More mature trees will not require as much attention but Barbados Cherries do require a constantly moistened soil. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil here is dry, it's time to water. Generally, we recommend watering once weekly, or watering based on your soil's moisture level.

3. Pruning: Prune the tree in the late fall after harvesting to form it into a desired shape. Damaged, diseased or dead branches can be removed at any time. Be sure to sterilize your cutting tool(s) with rubbing alcohol to ensure a nice, clean cut.

4. Fertilizing: Feed the Barbados with a time-released 8-3-9 fertilizer formula when you begin to see growth starting on the tree in the spring. Follow the application instructions on the fertilizer package. The potted Barbados will benefit from a bi-yearly feeding with a mineral fertilizer with a gradual release of nutrients.

Wonderful Gift

This was a gift for my sister in law, who said they had these trees in Puerto Rico. The packaging was great, the tree in great shape and it started blooming with two days of receiving it. This is, by far, the best company I have ordered live plants from. I plan to order from them in the future.
