Look it up! Miracle fruit! Little red berries from Africa (I think) that makes your taste buds go mad and even sour things taste sweet!

Miracle Fruit contains a glycoprotein called miraculin, which binds to the tongue’s taste buds when the fruit is consumed. Miraculin acts as a sweetness inducer when it comes in contact with acids, causing bitter and sour foods to taste sweet, temporarily. This effect usually lasts between 30 minutes and 2 hours.

I have some mushrooms from Newcastlew like that :-)

Never heard of it but looks like fun

Just tested it out today for a dinner party in the near future! Gonna make a meal etc then for dessert, miracle fruit and sour stuff! hahahaha! It was a bit wierd looking at the slice of lemon...Your mind is telling you it is sour don't eat it and your eyes water just thinking about it but put it in your mouth and its sweet!

sounds cool where did you get them from?

I like the way they sell the actual plant in the UK for £30 - then quote this:

The plant can be moved outdoors during the summer months, but take care to avoid temperatures below 50 degrees.

Do we live in the desert or something ? 50 degrees... damn nowadays we are lucky to see 5 !

USA. Like mentioned the fruit themselves are easily perishable and don't last long but you can get them in tablet form...

My friends are gonna think I'm mad when I bring out lemons, grapefruit, gooseberries, limes and stuff for dessert! Word of warning though...Even though they taste sweet, the acid will play havock with your stomach so don't eat too many/much!

I got some of them in tablet form from firebox ages ago, not sure if they still sell them but you could also try eBay
