The Miracle Fruit Plant, sometimes known as Miracle Berry, or Magic Berry (Sideroxylon dulcificum/Synsepalum dulcificum) is a plant first documented by an explorer during a 1725 excursion to its native West Africa. It is an evergreen plant that produces small red berries the size of small grapes throughout the year. These fruits have been consumed for hundreds of years with no reported ill effects. Growing instructions click here.
It prefers an acidic well draining soil with 50% sunlight or less as a container plant. It does well indoors and is happy on a windowsill. Easy to care for and slow growing. Few pests and fewer diseases. Prefers high humidity and to be kept warm. Will not tolerate a hard frost.
The berry is slightly sweet, and contains an active glycoprotein molecule called miraculin. When eaten this molecule binds to the tongue’s sour receptor taste buds, causing bitter and sour foods (such as lemons and limes) consumed after to taste sweet. Your sour receptors do not send the sour signal. This effect lasts between thirty minutes and two hours. It is not a sweetener, as its effects depend on what is eaten afterwards, but has been used to sweeten bitter medicines and lessen most chemotherapy aftertaste to help restore apetite. Most famous for the sweet lemon trick; eat a miracle fruit and lemons taste sweet. Learn more click here.
