An attempt to help anyone willing to grow the exotic and highly rewarding Miracle Fruit.

Step 1: Means of Success

What is Miracle Fruit you ask, well Miracle Fruit is a plant that produces somewhat tasteless red berries, HOWEVER, if someone where to eat the berry, then consume a sour substance ex. Lemon, Lime, Battery Acid(not recommended) it will taste like a deliciously sweet candy with no trace of sourness. Lemon juice will turn into lemonade, vinegar into nectar, etc. The effect can last half an hour to 2 hours, and does not impede any other part of your nervous system other than your taste buds and is in no way harmful.

You might have some of these on hand, others you may have to order such as the seeds

Bag of Perlite

Bag of Sphagnum Peat Moss

Gibberrelic Acid United Nuclear Not necessary but very helpful

Miracle Fruit Seeds (Check around if you live in South Florida because some nurseries carry the whole plant, otherwise here's where you can buy seeds Miracle fruit seeds

small pot (preferably a biodegradable one, to protect roots during transplanting) an egg container will also work. You may also use a Jiffy seed starter from a nursery. Follow the directions on the package

With all planting PATIENCE is needed


<p>It says on United Nuclear that plants grown with gibberellic acid shouldn't be eaten.</p>
<p>How long is the self life of miracle fruit seeds? can they be stored for a few months?(5-6)</p>

<p>Hello, how I can use Gibberrelic Acid on the substrate?</p>
i'm a bit new to the unusual plant hobby. i'm really interested in growing miracle fruit after i saw it in a National Geographic magazine. I recently sprouted some giant sequoia seeds, 22 sprouts but only 15 still survive, but you probably don't care. anyway, coo info about these plants. i'm going to give it a try, and who knows? i'll post another comment in a few days but as of now i gotta go. And no, Putzer, PLANTMAN is not my real name. (no negativity intended.)
Shows what you know, I do care about your giant sequoia seeds, it might take a while for them to grow to their full height though. I would plant them close together so i can live on a platform on top of them all, just an idea. AND its pretty obvious PLANTMAN16 isn't your name, it isn't grammatically correct, it must be Plant-man.
:D I really care about the Sequoias too...
Sequoia is the shortest word in the english language (or all latin based languages but I'm not sure) that has all five vowels in it.
Strengths is the longest single syllable word in the english language with only one vowel in it. hehe But that's off the topic. Awesome ible, will be checking out the seed shop. I did read about these before, never really thought of cultivating them. Documentaries don't usually give the impression the jungle fauna is for sale. Also, to Plantman... where'd you happen to come by those sequoia seeds? Just curious.
stewardesses is the longest word you can type with one hand (if you type properly).
<p>Incorrect. Actually tesseradecades and aftercataracts are among the longest words you can type with the left hand alone, if typing correctly</p>
stewardesses, YAY! i did it with one hand! *saying yay*
Yo Doulos, check out the thread now! Jump in if you think you're up for the challenge.
Heh heh, you just found out everyone was gone the day after you posted this. Funny.
You and your fancy wings picture...
It has so many s's too (:o)
indivisibility has the most i's!
its &quot;aireous&quot; if its the shortest word with all 5 vowels!
In Italian there is &quot;aiuole&quot; which is the plural of &quot;aiuola&quot; which means a little space where people grows flowers in a garden.
you've started something big, my friend.
i care those trees are huge i bet i could see it from my house
My grandparents brought back Giant Sequoia seeds to WA State (Mukilteo) back in the 1950's, and planted them in a row along their back fenceline. The trees were well over 8' tall when I last saw them around 1975. They were probably cut down because it was all view property and McMansions are being built there. Not that I'd want one, it's all soil on top of clay, and a good earthquake will remove everything above the clay.
I'm interested in your sequoia seed project. Of the 15 that survived, how many of them are still growing? How did you germinate the sequoia seeds?
I purchased frozen berries-. saving them for a &quot;miracle cleanse&quot; I need to drink Epsom salts - hoping berries will help but if it doesn't affect bitter- Uh Oh.. My brother eats my Aloe plants as Rx for ulcers, poultice for toothache etc.. i want to try this with berries.<br>I'm ready to buy plant with berries and try to grow them. <br>Anyone know where to purchase Artemesia Absynthia?- a special form of wormwood- I need it for a 3 step parasite cleanse -that claims to help clear the body of most cancers (&quot;The cure for all cancers ) see (Hulda Clark M.D.com) I used her recipes for 1.walnut Hull extract - 2.a make-do wormwood hybrid and 3.whole cloves - so far my mom's pre-cancerous growth on kidney has shrunk considerably..

I am looking to grow this plant at home. I did a Google search on growing this and I found this, now I know this site has everything. Thanks for the great writeup.
what if u eat it and taste something sweet will it reverse it or 2x it?
it will make it 2x as sweet!<br/><br/>If you aren't keen on waiting <strong>forever </strong> to grow the plant (it takes about 3 years to fruit!) you can buy the plant online through our site. we also have a nursery pro on hand to answer any questions<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.Buy-Miracle-Fruit.com">http://www.Buy-Miracle-Fruit.com</a><br/>
Not true! you selling tablets and you do not know how they work!? Miracle fruit does the following (2 theories that scientists have right now)<br /> <br /> <strong>1)</strong> it puts a layer over your sour/bitter taste-buds so it stops sour taste-buds from getting triggered in your brain. So only the sweet you taste. This explains why you taste lemons as sweet.<br /> <br /> <strong>2) </strong>it modifies the taste-bud a bit and tricking sour/bitter to react on the sour but with a sweet impulse. So every time the acid touches the sours/bitter taste-bud it tastes sweet (according to the brain).<br /> <br /> My personal experience relates more to theory no. 1. But my wife says it feels for here super sweet (lemons) and she goes for no. 2.<br /> <br /> But <strong>no way</strong> sweet things that have no acid or bitter will taste 2x as sweet. <a href="http://www.magicalfruit.com" rel="nofollow" title="Miracle Fruit">Miracle Fruit</a> is not a sweetener and does not alter sweet tastes. It only modifies sour (and a bit of bitter).
I'm fairly sure it's the 2nd one, because I have found that the lower the pH value the sweeter the taste. I've just purchased my first actual sapling, and I'm hoping to be able to get it growing with this helpful guide!
Opinions vary here. If its only sweet nothing will change. But if the original food was sweet and sour, since it block the sour is taste extra sweet. But its the perception and varies per person. Since no sugar is added and only sour taste is blocked to some people this food can taste 2x sweeter indeed.
If it makes sour things sweet, why would it make sweet thing sour...
Just a theory of his; Although i agree with you 100%
I heard that it makes them sweeter, most likely too sweet.
Just to clarify how it works: Miraculin binds to the sweet taste receptors, temporarily altering them in a way that they are activated by acid. No sugar is released as a result and bitter compounds will not produce a sweet taste. Sweet tastes mask bitter, so you may perceive a bitter food as less bitter if it's also acidic when paired with miraculin.
Anybody know of an alternate seed source? I can't use the one listed. Thanks.
I found it at Logee's Greenhouse, where I get my houseplants. Lovely specimen arrived. It's sitting on my deck right now.
Hi. I have some synsepalum seeds. My seeds have a shell, but I can hear the real seed shaking inside. So my question is: Have I to open it and remove the shell or have I to sow it whit the shell? Please answer asap! Thanks!!!
Unfortunately that means your seeds are dried out and dead. Like a pistachio, just not roasted... or salted.. or edible.. : o / Apparently the seeds don't have much of a shelf life at all. A seller on Amazon claims to guarantee receipt of fresh seeds. Good Luck!
<br> Luckily the weathers picked up i have a miracle fruit plant in a greenhouse currently growing which i picked up from the U.S. You can get some great plant packages with berries too from<a href="http://www.miraclefruithut.com" rel="nofollow"> http://www.miraclefruithut.com</a>, good pricing and they ship across the world too and its nice to try the berries before hand while you wait for the plant to grow!
Good tip thanx. I just got one from <a href="http://www.magicalfruit.com/">MagicalFruit</a> they sell officially only tablets but the owner hooked me up with some plants as a test shipment or something. Now lets hope they go well.
How is yours doing?
Is there anyone who grows these and would be willing to mail me a few seeds? I'd really like to try to grow my own plant indoors, I know my friends would think these are cool.
