The Yellow Muntingia will amaze you with it's fantastic flavor - a combination of sweet cereal milk and cotton candy!

It's a small to medium-sized, fast-growing tropical to subtropical evergreen fruit tree/shrub with small white flowers that resemble those of a strawberry plant. It produces year round yellow bite-size berries that ripen quickly. Muntingia's fruit is beloved by birds and squirrels but don't worry, since it fruits so prolifically almost all year long, there’s more than enough fruit for everyone to enjoy abundantly. 

You will not find this rare fruit at market even in its native range due to short shelf life so picking it off the tree and eating it fresh is a must if you want to experience this wholesome and exotic flavor. 

Strawberry Tree is easy to grow and thrives with little care. The plant has its roots in Central and South America with its native range stretching all the way from Southern Mexico through the Caribbean and south to Peru.

Muntingia calabura is also known as Strawberry Tree, Jamaican Cherry, Cotton Candy Berry, Panama Berry, Bajelly Tree, Singapore Cherry, Sabah Cherry,  Panama Cherry, Jam Tree, and Calabura.  Just shake the trunk and let it rain delicious fruity treats!

    Amazing experience

    I was impressed at how well my tree was packaged. They go above and beyond to make sure your plant is not damaged during transit! I’ve only had it for two weeks, but it looks healthy and happy. Looking forward to my next purchase.
