MIRACLE FRUIT

Miracle fruitBotanical Name: Synsepalum dulcificum
Description

Although not sweet itself this miraculous fruit, consumed fresh and allowed to coat the mouth alters your tastebuds so that everything you eat tastes sweet, lasting for an hour or two. It's extraordinary. The beauty of it is that it only removes the sourness 'acidity' from what you are eating, the natural aroma and taste remains. It has been used to sweeten bitter medicines. For success the plant prefers a pH as low as 4.5. A great companion for your blueberries. Requires a sheltered position free from frost and partial shade. Excellent unusual potted plant that can be moved into a hot spot during the cooler months. Very slow growing and best to grow as a potted planted until at least 1 metre high Further Information: Rare Fruit Review

My plant is indoors in a pot, so insect pollination is not an option. Only ever had 1-2 random berries. A couple of weeks back I tried 'buzz pollination' with an electric toothbrush (like with tomatoes) and now I've got about 40 berries coming. | S O'neill - Melbourne, VIC 27-Jan-2010

I'm not sure but i think these are wind pollinated. Perhaps if you gently shake your plants when they're in flower, you may have more berries. Then again, maybe not. That toothbrush method sounds successful too. | Brian - Pawtucket, RI 15-Aug-2010

Miracle Fruit

You can hand pollinate this fruit by using your nails to brush against the flower gentally. White pollen will fall on the nails and used to wipe the stigma of many flowers. You can tell the flowers are open as there is a very strong perfume that wafts. | Patrick Wu - Perth, WA 19-Sep-2010

Plant doing very well in a narrow but deep pot .I'm in Canberra so brought it in over winter and put it under a HPS lighting. Plant too young to fruit yet. Yates Osmocote slow release pelets seem to do the trick. Use Azalea potting mixture. | Mr Dave Brimmer - Richardson, A.C.T 17-Jun-2011

Comments: -

Purchased this one quite advanced, and it fruited straight away. Got around 5 berries the first year and lots forming spring 2010. Makes any not quite right/ripe citrus taste as sweet as candy! It is absolutely fantastic and highly recommended.

Seeds also germinate readily and I have a few seedlings sprouting at the base of the plant already.

I have this growing in a pot with just peat moss . Strictly morning sun only and keep the peat moss moist . Spray the leaves once or twice a day to keep them wet .  I have my solar hot water overflow dripping into the pot . Even though i get hundreds of berries every year i have only tried it once . I am not game to eat anything after i try one as it lasted 12 hours . Other people say it only lasted for an hour , it varies between diffrent people i guess . I always have plantlets coming up in the pot which i get rid of .

Dec 2010 - This plant almost gone to the "Tried But Died" section because I transplanted the plant too many times unecessarily. However, after months and months of TLC the plant is putting out a couple of new leaves. 


April 2010 - This fruit is said to change the tastebud, so any sour fruit we eat will taste sweet without altering the original flavour.  Apparently, this effect last within 2 hours after consuming the fruit fresh. I can hardly wait to try it myself.

Plant prefers acidic condition with ph of 4.5 so I mulch it with pine barks to help it along.

I only wish I bought it through Daleys, as I got it posted to me for $28 and it is way to small. We could have got it through Daleys and it would have cost much the same but we would have a nice big plant not a sprout.

Question:

i am using a "jiffy greenhouse" to plant my mirical fruit seeds. i only have 2 out of 18 sprouted. the sprouts look like a small stem with out any leaves so for, about 1/2" tall. is that normal? when do i transplant to larger pot? should i expect better results? is there any thing special i need to do to the seeds prior to planting. i first tried to soak some in a wet paper towel for about a week, didn't do. then i just placed some in the window sill for a few days to dry. these are the ones i have in plant now, they look a little moldy, but so do the ones that sprouted.

Growing quite well.  During Melbourne's winter I have brought it inside and stopped watering it, and it is coping.  Apparently likes acidic conditions so it is growing in a camelia potting mix.  I periodically add coffee grounds to the top of the pot.

a real talking point.  Really works as it should!  Loves heat so grows well in summer but struggles with Perth winter.  I treat it as a deciduous tree in Perth.  Fruits every year though. Semi-shade required in Perth. These fruits really enhance the flavour of strawberries and guavas - they taste like lollies with miracle fruit!

This is a freaky plant, I love it. A miracle fruit for diabetics, after I tried one i had to have one straight away. The fruit basically blinds your sour taste buds making sour things taste sweet,you can eat a lemon or lime without screwing your face up it'll make them taste sweet. Affects only last about half an hour maybe up to two hours but half hour is more like it for mine. I have a three year old one that is flowering and fruiting constantly and  5 year olds and about 10 seedlings.The big one has really greened up since i gave it better drainage and some composted manure and pine bark.seems to like semmi shade and the soil well drained and a little on the acidic side

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 555 days 0hrs

Comments: -

I just want to try the berries and then eat a lemon!

A very slow growing tree; patience is needed. I found that (as usual) the Victorian sun was too hot for it to be out in the full sun all day; causing it to recieve sunburn. Initially, a number of leaves died and fell off and some of the others browned up. But after a few months, it has finally started to produce new growth. Pests occaisionaly attack the plant so constantly look out for them. I have it in very well-drained soil. It stays in a mostly protected and shaded position with a short period of sun. If you find a spot that provides that, then you shouldn't have any problem with burning ot the leaves. Perhaps a shade clothed area to allow dappled sun would work really well. I give the Miracle tree the odd dose of fertiliser and liquid manure; this seems to have helped it along after potting it. I don't water this tree as regularly as some of the others as I think it grows well in nice moist soil.

Question: How can I help it flourish? Its been losing leaves since I bought it. I repotted it in a azelea, compost perliet and sand mix, which stopped the loss for the rest of Winter, but now the leaves are browning at the edges. In a few months it will be dead if no new leaves grow. I've now covered it with a plastic box to raise the humidity above Sydney's humid normal.
