The Grafted Black Surinam Cherry is a rare variety of Surinam Cherry that produces deep rich black fruit! The dark black fruit has a superb flavor that is sweeter and less resinous then the red fruit. Our Black Surinam Cherry trees are about 3 to 4 feet tall, grafted, and ready to fruit! 

Ripe Surinam cherries are soft to the touch with a thin skin, they are tart and acidic. The fruit is best when totally ripe, dark in color, and soft to the touch. Under ripe fruit is often bitter and astringent. The darker the fruit the better the flavor!  Surinam Cherry plants are very vigorous and fast growers. It's primarily grown as a hedge or natural privacy fence and will succeed in a variety of locations, reaching around 10-12 feet tall and wide if given the space.
