Barbados Cherry (Malpighia glabra)
Known as Acerola, the sweet cherry-like fruit has an extremely high concentration of vitamin C. Clusters of pink flowers and fruit form along the stems intermittently throughout the year. The fruit holds better in the heat of summer. In the north, Barbados Cherry will still flower on and off. Its habit is upright. When grown in pots, it is a fast grower usually beginning to flower at 3-4′ tall.
