Product Description

This small shrub has arching dark brown stems with green leaves and pink flowers followed by red berries throughout the year. Excellent bonsai or house plant specimen. The creeping stems and sometimes exposed roots can create really interesting shapes. The Dwarf Barbados Cherry is a small tree or shrub that grows up to 15 feet in height in the dry deciduous forest and can be found growing wild and under cultivation on the sandy soils throughout Northeast Brazil. It is native to the West Indies and is also found in northern South America, Central America and Jamaica. Acerola is the fruit of the tree.
