Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum)
We've been experimenting with Miracle Fruit for a number of years and finally we're able to offer it so others may enjoy it too. The miracle is in the berry. Once you've eaten the small red fruit (about the size of a gumdrop), everything sour eaten afterwards tastes incredibly sweet, including sour citrus. From tropical West Africa, it flowers profusely with fruit setting usually during the summer months in northern climates. Slow growth is normal and for successful growth it must be planted in an acidic soil-mixture of half sphagnum peat moss and half perlite. This plant remains modest in size.

  1. Logees directions key to success Review by Scott
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought a smaller one from another place but it didn't make it through the first winter.
    I bought the bigger size from Logees and followed their directions exactly. Half perlite and half peat moss for the mix. Then I only watered it with distilled water or rain water that first winter. I kept it in a south window in a room that was around 62 on the floor in the colest part of winter- I made sure it never got bone dry(although in my experience it can handle more dry than they said). It still dropped some leaves. I called the horticulturalist at Logees and they said I should be fertilizing it all winter. So I started in March to do that. This summer we had lots of berries. I had it in full sun until about 2:00. What a hit with the kids! Love it!

  2. Adorable plant Review by John
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought the smaller size, let it adapt, repotted it, and it’s already flowering about two weeks later. I can barely wait to see if it holds the fruit but it’s really an adorable little plant just as it is. It’s flushing growth... just a real room brightener. (Posted on 1/25/2018)

    I got this plant with my last order as an after thought. I saw it on the website and decided it might be a cool plant to have. Upon arriving it has quickly become one of my favorites! It is bushy with a lovely shape. I am excited to see some berries! (Posted on 8/4/2016)

    How do you rate this product?

    I ordered this plant and it arrived on time. I opened the box to find the plant perfectly packaged. When I took the plant out of the box I found it was in great condition. I would recommend Logee's to anyone. I can't wait far the plant to fruit. (Posted on 6/22/2016)

  5. Absolutely Beautiful Review by Judy
    How do you rate this product?

    I received this plant in my last order, and it is stunning. I order a lot of plants from Logee's, and am always pleased. These larger (4 inch-6 inch) plants are quite showy. This is a magnificent plant, very healthy and nicely shaped, at least 10-12 inches tall. I have only had it about a week and it doesn't have any fruit, but it is such a gorgeous plant. I can't wait till those red berries appear. Several people have already commented on what a pretty plant it is. (Posted on 5/25/2016)
