Synsepalum dulcificum Miracle Fruit

The red berry, when paired with sour foods (eg lemon and lime) changes the flavour profile of the sour food to sweet, by coating the mouth in miraculin. This binds to the taste buds causing sour foods to taste sweet, it is therefore known as miracle berry. The berry itself is low in sugar and is slightly sweet yet tangy.                                                                                                           The shrub grows to 4.5mtrswith dense foliage and small white flowers.
