This exotic, tropical fruit is a native of Brazil, and although it will there attain a height of 10-20ft, it can nevertheless be greenhouse or conservatory grown in a large pot and kept dwarf. With a little encouragement, they can produce their deep claret coloured fruits within 20 months of sowing. These are juicy with a very high Vitamin C content, and with a consistency and flavour much like a strawberry. However, like a great number of tropical plants, with its smooth, leathery leaves, you will still have a splendid foliage pot plant should you be unlucky enough for it not to bear you any fruit.

Germination; Sow indoors at any time. Prior to sowing soak the seed in warm water for 24 hours. Surface sow onto moist, well-drained seed compost. Just cover seed with a sprinkle of soil. Place in a propagator or cover with clear plastic. Ideal temp. 20-22°C. Germination takes 1-2 months approx. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to 8cm pots and grow on in partial shade. When the plant reaches 80cm it can tolerate full sun.
Growing; In the UK best grown in a cool greenhouse or conservatory. Dislikes humidity. Can be grown to a fruiting size in a pot under glass. Prefers a deep, rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Water frequently and offer a low nitrogen fertiliser. Drought will cause the flower buds to drop.
Cultivation; Can be pruned to restrict size or to train without affecting fruit production. Fruits grow on new branches.
