Where It Grows


The Barbados cherry can be classed as tropical and subtropical, for mature trees can survive brief exposure to 28° F (-2.22° C). Young plants are killed by any drop below 30° F (-1.11° C). It is naturally adapted to both medium- and low-rainfall regions; can tolerate long periods of drought, though it may not fruit until the coming of rain.


The tree does well on limestone, marl and clay, as long as they are well drained. The pH should be at least 5.5. Elevation to 6.5 significantly improves root development. Acid soils require the addition of lime to avoid calcium deficiency and increase yield. The lime should be worked into the soil to a depth of 8 in (20 cm) or more.
