Are you looking for alternative options, as you cut down on your sugar intake? The Miracle Berry plant is your answer. A natural sweetener. Synsepalum dulcificum also known as the “Miracle Berry” is an intriguing evergreen shrub native to West Africa. This plant is a wonder to scientists because it produces fruit that has the ability to make sour food taste sweeter. The berries contain miraculin that block or alter the sour taste bud sensory receptors on the tongue, making these acidic foods taste sweet. This effect can last anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours depending on the amount one consumes.

Miracle Berry plant is very easy-to-grow both indoors and outdoors. Although we would like to mention that this plant, as originally belonging to the tropics, prefers warm temperatures year-round. Hence, it would be better to grow it indoors as a houseplant if the temperatures drop significantly during the winters. The bright red berries catch attention against the deep green foliage and can be a great conversational plant. The plant can tolerate partial sunlight and it’s not fussy about watering sessions. Occasional watering will be great. The plant produces white flowers that are then followed by miraculous berries.
 

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4 or 6-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger decorative pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
