Growing BLACKBERRY JAM FRUIT From Seed – Unusual Fruit Growing

Today I’ll be showing you my 9 month journey of growing blackberry jam fruit trees (Randia formosa) from seed. I’ll show how to get the seeds started, what soil to use and show you their progress as they grow. This weird tropical fruit has a yellow skin/shell, with a black, jam looking fruit on the inside. A very novel and interesting fruit that apparently tastes like blackberry jam! It is in the coffee family, so is related to gardenia and has a nice scented flower. These shrubs or bushes fruit at a young age, even when grown from seed – they can fruit at just over a year old! Such a cool and strange fruit, that can be grown in containers and even produce fruit indoors as a house plant.
