Product Description

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 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.

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.

Pollination Info

Miracle Berry Plant Pollination

Miracle Berry Plants 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.

Planting & Care

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.

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.

Love it

I bought mine last year and this year I have a lot of berries to pick. Not sure if I ordered from this website but my tree came pretty bushy and is very bushy now. I love these berries and it is true what they say about it.

Fruit in 8 months

Received plant for Christmas 2020 and ate the first berry 8/20/21. This is a great looking plant and interesting to watch mature. The new red blushed colored new growth is a stand out and then the tiny flower buds circling the branches so interesting. I read all the articles I could find hoping for a spectacular result for my new plant. Received a 2 ft. potted plant- repotted into a 22" decorative container with bottom watering reservoir. I had received a box of long pine needles from NE Florida woods. I saved up coffee grounds for more acid levels. Botting mix was combination of acid mixes with coffee grounds added. The bottom of container has 2" of pine needles and the top was mulched with pine needles. ( you need to use scissors to get them settled in to look nice) After two weeks I could new growth and was pleased at the results. I started to find tiny ants accumulating around the leaf joints. Then the Lady bugs moved in- and kept the ants under control. No pest control used so far. The ants are pollinating the tiny flowers. Apparently there were more berries than I say because I have about 6 new plants growing up from the top of soil. They must germinate very easily. Can't wait to transplant them. I have only eaten one berry and saved the seed for planting. I defiantly was pleased with the taste of food after trying it. Can't wait to keep experimenting with new flavors. Limes didn't have that sour bite and there was a sweet after taste. Regular meals were like comparing a TV dinner with a high priced meal at a restaurant. It's hard to describe but you know it's way better flavor.
