#ProPlantTips for Care:

Achacha are unusual tropical trees that once they flower and fruit, that part of the plant dies and the plantlets around its base take over for the next generation. Prune after fruiting if needed and provide a frost-free environment.

  • Self-Pollinating
  • Prune into a Tree or Shrub after Flowering
  • Full Sun & Part Shade
  • Consistently Moist Soil & Enriched Environment
