Description: Bahama Berry is a low growing bushy shrub indigenous to the Bahamas and very well suited to Florida's subtropical climate. This plant thrives on humidity and heat! The plant has tiny, rough textured shiny leaves that emit a delicious aroma when crushed. The fragrance has been compared to a blend of vanilla, honey and pineapple. The leaves and flowers are used to make a tasty, sweet herbal tea. Warning: Bahama Berry does not tolerate drying out. In fact, it’s nick name is “I dry, I die”. Additionally, it can become leggy if grown in partial shade, and it can grow huge if not harvested regularly. These plants are also known by the names Moujean Tea and Pineapple Verbena.
When maintained and pruned regularly, the plant can become a very nice, compact plant and can make interesting bonsai specimens.
There are a lot of uses for this plant. The pleasant aroma, the wonderful sweetness, and the decorative attributes. Whether you plan on using it primarily or solely for tea or if you want to explore some of the other uses by trying the leaves and extracts in soaps, candles, or foods.
