Native to St. Croix, Trinidad and Curacao. the Barbados Cherry tree will grow and flower easily with little care. The flowers have five pink or lavender, spoon-shaped, fringed petals. The edible fruits, which are very high in vitamin C, are borne singularly or in two’s or three’s. The cherry size fruits are bright red with a thin glossy skin. Best to keep outdoors during spring and summer for best pollination.
