Miracle Fruit Plant – Nature’s Sweet Sensation, Flavor Transformation

Embark on a flavor-transforming journey with the Miracle Fruit Plant. This remarkable plant offers a unique experience as it turns sour into sweet, leaving a lasting impression on your Fruitscape™ and your taste buds.

The Miracle Fruit Plant produces small, red berries that, when consumed, coat your taste receptors and alter your perception of taste. Sour foods like lemons and vinegar suddenly become deliciously sweet, creating a sensory sensation that’s nothing short of magical.

Cultivate your Miracle Fruit Plant in a well-drained, acidic soil, with a pH level around 4.5 to 5.5. This ensures the plant’s optimal growth and berry production. Place it in a spot with bright, indirect light or partial shade, protecting it from harsh midday sun.

As part of your Fruitscaping™ adventure, the Miracle Fruit Plant adds a whimsical touch to your garden. Its fascinating ability to transform flavors makes it a fun addition to gatherings and culinary experiments.

Elevate your gardening experience with the Miracle Fruit Plant and explore the enchanting world of taste transformation. Order now and delight in the sweet surprises this plant brings to your palate.

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.
