Piscataway, NJ, July 22, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Imagine peeling and eating a lemon as one normally would eat an orange. As unusual as it sounds, eating a lemon can be an enjoyable experience -- as long as one first eats some miracle fruit. Obtaining fresh miracle fruit, however, can be difficult, since the berry is notoriously perishable. Thankfully, experiencing the extraordinary taste-changing effects of miracle fruit just became a lot easier.
Miracle Fruit USA, the nation's leading retailer and wholesaler of miracle fruit products, is now offering the fruit in tablet form. In June, the company added miracle fruit tablets to a product line that already included miracle fruit seeds, plants, fresh berries, and freeze-dried granules.
Miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) is known for its unique ability to temporarily change taste perception; foods that are normally sour will taste sweet. While the fruit has been known to Westerners since 1725, recent media attention has introduced the product to many people for the first time. This summer, demand for the fruit reached an all time high.
According to Miracle Fruit USA cofounder Christopher Vallone, the tablets have proven especially popular with customers. "People seem to like the convenience and extended shelf life of the tablets," stated Vallone. The tablets, which contain pressed freeze-dried miracle fruit, can be stored for approximately 1 year.
Customer Samantha Talbot, of Birmingham, Alabama, spoke glowingly about the tablets she purchased from the Miracle Fruit USA online store. Exclaimed Talbot, "The effect is amazing… my usual glass of water with a slice of lemon tasted like lemonade!"
