Barbados Cherry "Fruit" - Plants

Barbados cherry, also known as acerola or West Indian cherry, is a small, flowering tree native to Central and South America. It is widely cultivated for its small, bright red fruit, which is high in vitamin C and other nutrients.

The Barbados cherry tree grows to a height of about 20 feet, with a round, spreading canopy. The leaves are glossy and dark green, and the flowers are small and white. The fruit is about the size of a cherry, with a thin skin and a juicy, tart flesh. It is often used in jams, jellies, and other preserved foods, as well as in fresh fruit salads and drinks.

The Barbados cherry plant is relatively easy to grow, and can thrive in a variety of soil types and climates. It is drought-tolerant and can withstand moderate frost, making it a good choice for gardeners in tropical and subtropical regions. It is important to keep the plant well-watered and fertilized, and to protect it from pests and diseases.

  • Sunlight: Place your Barbados Cherry plant in a location that receives bright, indirect sunlight for at least 6-8 hours a day.
  • Watering: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Ensure proper drainage by using a well-draining potting mix.
  • Temperature and Humidity: Barbados Cherry plants thrive in warm temperatures between 65°F (18°C) and 85°F (29°C).
  • Fertilization: Feed your plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer formulated for flowering plants every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
  • Pruning: Prune your Barbados Cherry plant to maintain its shape and remove any dead or damaged branches. Pruning after the blooming period can help promote new growth.
