The Barbados cherry, commonly known as acerola, is a small bushy tree or shrub with glossy green leaves. A small cherry fruit of bright purple color grows on the tree. Malpighia cherry trees are quite rare outside of warm climates, but they are worth growing because of their unusual fruits.

Acerola fruits are sweet, juicy and juicy with a tart cherry flavor. This fruit can easily meet your daily needs.

These delicate fruits, which are often grown to make acerola juice or jam, are easily damaged. That’s why it’s unlikely that you’ll find it at your local supermarket. But when it grows at home, you will be able to provide yourself with at least one source of this unique and unusual fruit for your pleasure.

So, let’s look at all the best methods of growing and caring for this unique tropical tree!

All About The Barbados Cherry

Acerola cherry, also called Barbadian cherry, is a bit confusing at first. Three different botanical names are associated with them.

The main type of fruit is Malpighia emarginata, and it yields abundant yields of sweet acerola fruits. At one point it was classified under the botanical name Malpighia punicifolia, but has since been reclassified.

A secondary species, Malpighia glabra, is also called the Barbados cherry. This species is mainly decorative, as it blooms profusely, but produces very few fruits. The taste of the fruit is identical to the taste of the fruiting Malpighia.

Other common names for this species include West Indian cherry or wild crepe myrtle.

The West Indian cherry grows in the West Indies, the tropical lowlands from Mexico to southern Texas and other nearby regions of South and Central America. Warm tropical conditions are required to bloom and keep it in good shape as an evergreen.

Although it can reach a height of up to 20 feet, it is often grown as a much shorter tree or shrub. Its sweet fruits are extremely rich in vitamin C and are sometimes used in the industrial production of vitamins, as well as for the preparation of juices or canned food.

The Barbados cherry is an evergreen beauty that blooms during the summer months. Each flower is pinkish pink and about 3/4 inch in diameter. The flowers develop in groups of three to six flowers. As the flowers wither, the pollinated flowers ripen into fragrant cherries in less than 25 days.

In addition, Malpighia species can grow and develop from spring to autumn. The fruits are bright red or dark purple in color. They are juicy and have a delicate apple flavor with a slight tart aftertaste.

In general, the cherry trees of Barbados are dense, tall, with spreading branches that grow from a short trunk. The leaves of cherry trees are shiny, green and thick. They have a narrow oval shape that tapers gracefully.

The root system of this tree is shallow and sprawling, which makes it vulnerable to strong winds. However, they can be straightened and they can still recover if the roots were not damaged by the fall.

Acerola Cherry Trees

If you are in a hot climate, you may want to grow this tree yourself! Let’s look at what you need to know before planting it.

When To Plant

Although the seeds are unrealistic at best, planting them in the fall in a warm seedling container can give you a very young tree to transplant in the spring. It is better to wait until they are older to plant your grafts because they will have more time to take root before they are exposed to harsh weather conditions. Annual seeds are ideal for this purpose.

Before planting, make sure that the soil is warm and that there is no freezing in your area. If so, consider keeping the Malpighia in a container as a bush and bringing it indoors during a cold snap.

Where To Plant

Acerola cherry trees can successfully grow in containers with a diameter and height of at least 20 inches. This is the best method for those who are not in a warm and non-freezing place.

Make sure that the place where you plant your tree is protected from the wind, but there are conditions for bright sunlight on it. If you plant in the ground, place them at least 10-12 feet apart and the same distance from underground pipes or buildings. This ensures that they will have enough room for root propagation.

How to Plan

Most of the seedlings will be sent in pots. To plant these aceroles in pots, dig a hole at least 3-4 feet in diameter and the same depth to loosen the soil. In addition to a good dose of agricultural lime, there is no need to add a lot of rich compost to provide the soil with nutrients, as well as a good dose of agricultural lime and apply it to the soil.

Create an embankment in the center of your hole formed from modified soil that will keep the tree at the same depth at which it is currently planted. Do not plant it deeper, as this can potentially damage the trunk of the tree or the grafting joint (if any). Fill it with prepared soil, then apply 3″-4″ buckets around the base of the tree. Leave a gap between the mulch and the trunk.

Barbadian Cherry Care

To get the unique apple flavor of this unusual cherry tree, you need to create optimal growing conditions for it. Let’s go beyond the proper way to care for your trees now.

Water and humidity

Young trees require regular watering. As your malpighia glabra or emarginata matures and develops deeper roots, it will gradually become more resistant to drought. However, you should supply it with water during periods of drought. You can do this by using a wetting hose for slow and gradual wetting.

Although it can tolerate humidity, no tree likes too high soil moisture. Make sure that the soil easily drains excess water to avoid ailment such as red root.

Field

The types of loamy soils are best suited for your tree. However, it will tolerate a clay-loam mixture provided that it is well drained. Even rammed clay, which drains excess water, is acceptable if you plan to modify it.

The pH level of your soil should be from 6.5 to 8. If in doubt, add agricultural lime to the soil, as it tolerates alkaline conditions better than acidic ones. Alkaline conditions also improve the yield of the tree.

Add compost or manure to provide the soil with a large amount of useful organic substances. It can also help to improve the moisture-holding capacity of your soil, so limit what you process in the planting pit to enough to satisfy your seedling immediately. Then, if necessary, you can fill it with additional compost.

Fertilizer

If you’re looking for a new tree, you’re looking for a new tree, and you’re looking for a new tree, then you’re looking for a new tree, and you’re looking for a new tree, and you’re looking for a new tree, and you’re looking for a new tree, and you’re looking for a new tree. a tree, and you’re looking for a new tree. This gives it a lot of nutrients that can be used to grow cherries or new foliage.

In the southern United States, the typical ratio for producers of these trees is 10-10-10 fertilizers at the very beginning of spring. Use a special pot with fertilizers 5-5-5 or more for summer and autumn meals.

Feed according to the age of your tree and the instructions of the fertilizer manufacturer. Do not use acid fertilizers intended for plants such as rhododendrons or citrus fruits. Instead, choose a fertilizer designed for growing fruits or vegetables.
