A plant known as “Miracle Fruit.” The miracle is: after eating one fruit, sour and bitter foods taste sweet. Eating even the sourest of limes, one will taste only sugary sweetness. The fruit is not sweet itself, but this amazing effect occurs and some people even use them as natural sweeteners. This effect lasts between 15-60 minutes. This slow growing African shrub likes to be grown outdoors in a shady/filtered light area. They do well in containers and can be grown indoors with bright light and high humidity, but it is ideal to grow outdoors when possible. Fruit is produced through out the year and hundreds of berries can be harvested from a single plant. Miracle fruit can be rare to find.
