Acerola - Florida Sweet

$34.00 ($14.90-$79.00 choose a size)

This bright red cherry like fruit has varying tastes during different stages as it ripens. When fully ripe the fruit is juicy and aromatic with its acid content giving it a sweet acid apple-like flavour. The tree can produce a number or crops each year, making for quite a long harvest season. Our selection is called the acerola Florida Sweet Cherry and is a pleasant eating variety that is not too sour. The acerola is well suited to pot culture where it can be kept to a smaller size. It could also be grown this way in cooler climates where it can be moved to a warmer position in the winter. A word of warning the foliage of the plant is covered in tiny irritating stinging hairs that can produce an allergic reaction. When pruning your trees wear a long sleeved shirt and a pair of gloves.

The fruit tastes even better in cooler climates. But don't try to grow them below 31F degrees. Fruits nearly all the time over 50F degrees.

The first plant died in winter, but possibly due to being overwatered one time, as I have since read from another contributor that this plant requires very good drainage.  Planted another plant and covered with shade cloth to see if it grows better. B...
