7 gal pot. This plant is grown in 7 gal pot, more mature than our standard size plants in 3 gal, has a more developed root system, and most of the time thicker trunk and more branches. However actual plant size may vary depending on the growing season and on variety. Dwarf varieties are slow growers and may be shorter trees than upright varieties. See a picture showing the relative size of plants grown in 3 gal and 7 gal.
You may contact us if tree height matters to you and we will provide you with more exact plant size we have in stock at the time. 7 gal plants may be shipped separately from other items by Ground service due to its large size. See here time in transit (business days, excluding Sat-Sun!)

Malpighia punicifolia - Dwarf Barbados-Cherry, Dwarf Acerola
This dwarf form of Acerola makes a wonderful low-growing shrub or beautiful bonsai tree with edible fruit. Profuse bloomer, it is also a nice ornamental.
Due to its shallow and smaller root system, Acerolas can be interplanted with other crops more closely than many trees. Acerolas grows in marl, limestone, clay and other heavy soils as long as it drains well. Has the highest vitamin C content of any fruit. 1 Cherry is equal to 12 oranges. Used in jellies, jams, freezes without losing its vitamin C content. The plant is drought tolerant and easy to grow.

Malpighia punicifolia Nana - seeds

Can be used for bonsaiSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Dwarf Barbados cherry deserves more praise. Without coaxing or pampering, this 3-4-foot native produces small pink and white flowers, attracting butterflies with the sweet nectar. The dainty blooms are followed by red, very tasty cherry-like fruit, a favorite among birds. The dense, glossy, dark-green foliage lingers in mild winters, making this small shrub useful as a hedge or a year-round accent in a border. It likes sun or part sun and is drought-tolerant once established. If you'd like a larger version, the standard Barbados cherry is 7 to 9 feet tall. Acerolas grow in marl, limestone, clay and other heavy soils as long as it drains well. Has the highest vitamin C content of any fruit.
