Miracle Fruit Season


Our miracle fruit tree (Synsepalum dulcificum) is looking a bit like Christmas with the deep red fruits decorating the tree and contrasting greatly against the lush green leaves, like lights at Christmas. I went and checked on them last night and pulled this handful off the tree and there are several more that have ripened today that I will go pick in a bit. Nothing like a fresh lemon eaten after gnawing on a few miracle fruits first! Mmmm!

I’m going to save a few seeds for our friend Christine who requested some to start and I think I’ll plant the others so maybe we can have a little grove of miracle fruit. And by grove I mean they will have to be in a container to be moved inside during temperatures below 40*. Unfortunately we’re just not warm enough to over winter them like we were in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami.
