Acerola - Florida Sweet

$14.90 ($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.

I have one growing and I wanted another one. They are really good looking palms. It probably won't fruit where I am, but I'm growing them for their looks.

Potted it up in a 12 inch pot, won't plant out until mid/late spring. Slow growing, hence hardy, so not expecting them to end up as tall as the ones in the above stock image.

Had my jelly palm for 4 months now and is growing well in a 25 litre pot filled with coconut husks and black soil. Have added one cup of dynamic lifter, water every 3rd day in full sun and growing well. Average temp is about 22 - 32C. Will be buying more

This advice from Daley'sFruit is wrong, because the male and female flowers are on the same palm: "Plants required to Pollinate 3 Plants (Male and Female)" See this: https://www.crfg.org/pubs/ff/edible-palms.html#jelly

Butia Capitata globule fruits, the B. Yatay teardrop fruit. In Adelaide garden about 10 years before fruiting. Each year 3 huge bracts laden with aromatic fruits. Pick when bright orange, wash, boil 2 hours, de-stone then squeeze out juice. Cordial/jelly.

I believe the difference between a Butia capitata and Butia yatay is that the yatay drops its frons and the capitata doesn't! The frons make a beautiful 'cap' or skirt around the palm stem if left uncut.

Other Jelly Palms,eg those as existing street trees and in private gardens,aren't as good tasting as Daley's Jelly Palm variety.Daley's Jelly Palm might be from a superior seed.Daley's is less stringy,less acid and better tasting.
