Properties & Care

🪴 The peanut butter fruit tree can be grown well in a pot in temperate climates. Use well-draining, fertile soil and place the pot in a sunny location. Water when the top of the soil dried up. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer.

Maintain humidity at a minimum of 50% and temperature between 10-35°C. Hand pollinating the flower is not needed as the tree is self-fertile. With proper care, it can thrive and produce its unique fruits.


The peanut butter fruit tree (Bunchosia glandulifera), known for its distinctive taste reminiscent of peanut butter, is recognized by different names in various languages.

In Portuguese, particularly in Brazil, it is known as Ameixa-do-peru and Caferana. In Mandarin, it is called “花生酱果” (Huāshēngjiàng guǒ). In English, it is often simply termed “peanut butter fruit.” Other languages: Abrikosine andene, Ameishia, Arumeniaka, Bunkoshia, Piinattsu bataa furuutse, Caferana or False guarana.

Propagation of the peanut butter fruit tree is typically achieved through seed germination or cuttings. Here’s how to propagate it:

Seed Collection and Preparation: Harvest ripe fruits and extract seeds. Clean them thoroughly to remove any fruit pulp and allow them to dry for a few days.

Germination: Sow the seeds in a pot filled with a well-draining, sterile seed-starting mix. Plant them about 1 cm deep and keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Place the pot in a warm, sunny spot with temperatures around 20-25°C.

Cuttings: Take 15-20 cm long stem cuttings from healthy, mature trees. Remove the lower leaves, dip the cut ends in rooting hormone, and plant them in a pot with a mixture of sand and peat. Keep the cuttings in a humid environment with indirect light, maintaining temperatures between 20-25°C until roots develop.

Care: Transplant seedlings or rooted cuttings into larger pots with rich, well-draining soil. Ensure they receive plenty of sunlight, regular watering, and occasional feeding with a balanced fertilizer. This method will help establish a healthy, fruit-bearing peanut butter fruit tree.
