Miracle Fruit are a little red berry full of miraculin, a compound that binds to your tastebuds and changes the way you perceive flavors for 2 hours after you eat it. Sour becomes sweet, flavors are enhanced. Used often to stimulate the tastebuds of people going through chemotherapy, and as a sugar substitute for people with diabetes.
Miracle fruit grow in the same region as coffee, they like the shade and lots of water. They are actually a shrub, and can live quite happily in a 7g pot for life. They should be covered or brought inside if the temperature drops below 40deg, the leaves will start to turn red if they are damaged by cold. They produce fruit from spring till fall, usually with a large crop around thanksgiving, then they take a break until it warms up consistently. Pic when the entire berry is a uniform dusty ruby color.
