Fruitscaping with Miracle Fruit Plants

Miracle Fruit originated in Tropical West Africa, and is used to a hot & wet atmosphere.  Therefore, this plant does not do well in any cold at all, and outside of a very warm zone, should be used as beautiful container plant. Don’t hide this plant, as this amazing bush is known for the fact that after eating one berry, sour/acidic foods will taste sweet for the next 15-30 minutes!!  Place it in a lovely container, in a high traffic area on your deck or front porch.  Surround it with other citrus container plants like a Meyer Lemon or Key Lime bushes.  This way you and your guests can put its amazing “Sour to Sweet” abilities to test.  If you are in a warm zone and planting outdoors, it is said to do best in partial shade.

Shipping Restrictions

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
