Product Description

Tropical Fruit with a Hint of Peanut Butter!

Why Peanut Butter Trees?

You won't find these one-of-a-kind fruits at the grocery store! The Peanut Butter Fruit Tree is a unique tropical specimen you'll have to see (and taste!) to believe.

The Peanut Butter Fruit Tree, or Bunchosia argentea, is a South American native that blooms with clusters of bright yellow flowers. Once plants reach maturity, those blooms will produce olive-sized oval fruits that ripen to a deep, glossy orange-red. The soft, sweet fruits have a unique taste that's reminiscent of peanut butter - and a texture that's similar to a fig.

Each Peanut Butter Fruit Tree will produce two fruits per flower stem. These hot-weather lovers will fruit best in warm, sunny climates - but they can be container-planted in cooler areas and brought inside in the winter.

Why is Better
But the top perk is that we’ve hand-selected this variety. Our local experts and plant specialists have chosen your Peanut Butter Tree because it’s one-of-a-kind and it's a proven performer. From planting to growing and shipping, we ensure that you get the best of the best on the market…now, you reap the rewards.

Looking for tropical growth, eye-catching blooms and unique fruit, right in your homescape? Look no further…and get your own Peanut Butter Fruit Tree today!

Pollination Info

Peanut Butter Fruit Tree Pollination

Peanut Butter Fruit Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Peanut Butter Fruit Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full sun to partial sun (about 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s about two times the size of your plant’s root ball, in terms of width, place the Peanut Butter Fruit Tree in the hole, and backfill the soil. Finally, water the area to settle your Peanut Butter Tree’s roots.

In colder climates, you can plant your Peanut Butter Tree in a pot. Select a pot that's about twice the size of your tree's shipped container, fill with organic soil, and place your tree in its pot. Move your pot inside when temperatures drop in winter.

2. Watering: A tropical grower, your Peanut Butter Fruit Tree will prefer rich, moist soil. Water regularly, especially when the tree is establishing, keeping the soil evenly moist.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced, slow-release fertilizer three times a year. Unfertilized Peanut Butter Fruit Trees will grow more slowly - however, too much or low-quality fertilizer can harm your tree, so use a trusted brand.

Beautiful Tree

I only order from fast growing trees! Super fast shipping and beautiful healthy trees. Now this tree came in and was taller than expected with flowers on it!!! Since this is a rare fine, I am so happy it’s thriving! 3ft tall, a bit expensive, but worth it! Peanut Butter Fruit Tree Peanut Butter Fruit Tree Peanut Butter Fruit Tree Review

Tree arrived in perfect condition, having new growth and lots of small flower buds. Been in the ground for a couple of weeks now and growing beautifully. Peanut Butter Fruit Tree Review

Beautiful and well packaged

I'm very happy with the condition it came in. Nice buds and new leaves. It ships on its side, so slightly shifts. But that can be fixed once I repot it. Excellent quality. Peanut Butter Fruit Tree Review

Mine came with a fruit!

This one is fairing much better than the strawberry tree I bought. The fruit is weird- dark red when ripe, with one large seed. It tastes like a combination of sweet potato and carrot! The tree itself so far is just a rooted branch- I hope it grows more branches later.

Tree came nicely, was much BIGGER than I anticipated and was flowering. So far so good! I'm in 9b (New Orleans) so I put it in a large pot and plan on putting it in the art studio Skylights and large windows) for the winter months. Let's see how it goes!
