Miracle Fruit

9798 2 Miracle Fruit
During my recent visit to Top Tropicals nursery in south Florida, owner Mike Dubinovsky let me experience the effects of miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum). Native to Africa, this bush bears small, red fruits that produce a protein that inhibits the perception of sour taste for hours. Once you eat a miracle fruit, it makes even the sourest lemon taste sweet as candy. Mike says eating a miracle fruit makes beer taste like Coke. I’d rather have beer taste like beer, but I can say that miracle fruit enhances the flavor of vodka. It’s an Absolut miracle! You can order miracle fruit at www.TopTropicals.com.
