This buy it now is for 8 CUTTINGS of my Florida Sweet variety Barbados cherry aka Acerola cherry.
I live in central Florida zone 9B and this bush loves hot weather and full sun. Most nurseries don’t know there are lots of varieties of Barbados cherries so unless they are fruiting when you get it or you get a cutting or airlayer from one you have tasted, you don’t know if you are getting a delicious sweet/tart variety or one that is bland and disease prone or has fruit that is just sour or one that grows nicely but rarely fruits. I’ve seen all of them. My bush Florida Sweet variety tastes like Hawaiian Punch and it’s delicious and very productive. It fruits all summer long. I don’t prune it much and it’s about 6-7’ tall and 7’ wide. They can make a great hedge and should fruit in about a year from a cutting and sometimes even less. I LOVE that from the time it flowers till the time the fruit is ready is only 28 days!! ❤️ Message me with any questions. Thanks, Jan Doolin
