Pollination Info

Peanut Butter Tree Pollination

Peanut Butter Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Peanut Butter 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 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.

2. Watering: Once established, your Peanut Butter Tree is moderately drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or check the surrounding soil for your tree. If the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water your tree.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced fertilizer in spring, before new growth appears.

Hard to find

It arrived in great condition and the shipping was very fast. I had looked for this other places and this is the only retailer I found.

peanut butter tree

while I have not yet seen the beautiful blooms, the tree was nice, tall & sturdy and looked so healthy. I am so excited to see it grow.

Great size tree

Tree arrived healthy, a little banged up but that’s to be expected because of the big journey it had to get to me. The tree is doing great! It’s been more than a week and it’s happy it had fruited before it got to me, there was a fruit in the box. So I know it’s at fruiting age, excited to try some of these fruits in the future. Beautiful tree, overall very happy with my purchase! Will go through this nursery again in the future.
