GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The Barbados cherry, a member of the Malpighiaceae, is an interesting example of a fruit that rose, like Cinderella, from relative obscurity about 40 years ago.
  • The Barbados cherry is a large, bushy shrub or small tree attaining up to 20 ft (6 m) in height and an equal breadth.
  • Not only the Barbados Cherry is tasty, but it is also rich in vitamins!
  • When the plant starts to get full of these bright red berries, it looks really beautiful in the garden!

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A well-draining soil is of primary importance as Barbados Cherry Trees roots do not like to be wet and will rot if allowed to sit in water for extended periods.
  • A mixture of soil, sand, and perlite is highly recommended for proper drainage.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • It is recommended that you fertilize at the same time as you water using a time-released fertilizer 8-3-9 or similar to help your Barbados Cherry Trees grow and produce a substantial crop.
  • It is important to follow the fertilizers labeled instructions as to not burn or kill the tree.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Barbados Cherry Trees prefer bright light and direct sun.
  • If possible 12 hours of bright sunlight is best for growth and fruit production though we have gotten remarkable results growing these trees in 30% shade year-round.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • When watering Barbados Cherry Trees make sure to lightly soak the soil and then do not water again until the top 2 inches are dry.
  • Be sure to not overwater,  mucky soil will almost always cause decay and ultimately kill the tree.
