One of the most fascinating exotic fruit, as amazing as Miracle fruit, Peanut Butter Fruit is loved by both kids and adults. Yes, it tastes exactly like peanut butter! Sweet, soft pulp with peanut flavor. The tree is small in size, grows 10-15 ft max, or can be kept as a bush. Starts fruiting within 2-3 years from seed! Keep it in a pot if you have limited space, can be grown indoors, too.
This attractive tree has clusters of yellow flowers that are followed by an abundance of dark red fruit to around 1". The rich, sweet flesh has a texture similar to peanut butter, and yet it is much more healthy food! The fruit can be eaten fresh or made into milk shakes.
There is a discussion regarding this species accurate name - Bunchosia argentea or Bunchosia armeniaca.
