Miracle Fruit Tree (synsepalum dulcificum)

Juicy Miracle fruit, an evergreen bush, is a marvelous conversation plant that does well in a container. The plant has deep green, elongated leaves which grow in a spire-like habit and small 1/4 inch white flowers are produced in flushes throughout the season. The fruit is a small bright red, ellipsoid berry containing a single seed. Although mildly sweet itself, when a single fruit is eaten and the fleshy pulp allowed to coat the taste buds of the tongue and inside of the mouth, an extraordinary effect occurs for around 30 minutes to an hour. You can now eat a lemon or lime or any sour food and it will taste as if it was coated in sugary goodness. Amazing!
