The peanut butter tree originates from Venezuela & Columbia and produces small, red-orange fruits that taste like peanut butter. The fruits can be eaten fresh or processed into jam or e.g. a milkshake (common in the US). The fruit flesh is soft, and in the middle you can find a large seed. It’s a tropical plant which can also be kept as a houseplant. Water the plant regularly and provide a sunny spot.

Sow the seeds in sowing mix at 25 deg Celcius. Keep the soil constantly moist.
