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 can make sour food taste sweeter. The berries contain miraculin that block or alters the tongue's sour taste bud sensory receptors, making these acidic foods taste sweet. This effect can last 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 originally belonged 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 is not fussy about watering sessions. Occasional watering will be great. The plant produces white flowers that are then followed by miraculous berries.
