In Florida, the Surinam cherry is one of the most common hedge plants throughout the central and southern parts of the state and the Florida Keys. The fruits are today mostly eaten by children, who love to eat the fruits fresh from the bushes. This is one of my favorite memories from childhood, finding the reddest, ripest, sweetest cherries to pop in my mouth! Also great for jellies and jams or even making liqueur.

I have a frugal recycle method of shipping my plants. I use cereal, cracker and etc. boxes, damp paper towels and shredded paper then completely cover with adhesive tape. This keeps the shipping cost down for my buyer. The USPS boxes weigh so much more and must be sent Priority which then puts the weight over First Class mail with the same quick delivery time. If you would prefer Priority add $2.75 additional to the shipping price. Thanks, Brenda

We have two large shrubs in our yard - they are about 10' tall and about the same size in span. They are covered with fruit at this time and usually fruit twice a year.
I do not notice too many volunteer plants underneath. The birds don't seem to bother them and we have no squirrels.

The taste is sweet with a slightly tart undertone. I like making flavored vinegars with it. Wonderful in mixed fresh green salads, with some crumbled feta and chopped toasted macadamia nuts.

3 cups cherries
3/4 cup distilled vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water

Cook until cherries are soft and mushy. Pass through a fine sieve, pushing as much of the pulp as you can through it. Beautiful ruby red color. Makes great gifts.
