熱帶小型樹或大型灌木生長紅色小果實. 植株以它的果子聞名!  資料如下:

“When the fleshy part of the fruit is eaten, this molecule binds to the tongue’s taste buds, causing sour foods to taste sweet. At neutral pH, miraculin binds and blocks the receptors, but at low pH (resulting from ingestion of sour foods) miraculin binds protons and becomes able to activate the sweet receptors, resulting in the perception of sweet taste. This effect lasts until the protein is washed away by saliva (up to about 30 minutes)."–quote from Wikipedia.

“神秘果果實內覆一籽,食用時僅吃外部果肉,果皮富含花青素可吃入,外層果肉吃完,將保留完整的籽吐出(若不甚咬破會產生苦味,變味效果受影響)。 再來吃富含水果酸的水果,如檸檬、蘋果、番茄、鳳梨、芒果、百香果等,水果味覺會轉化至可口香甜。變味效果持續30~200分鐘(依個人味蕾差異有所不同)。欲中斷變味效果,飲溫熱水即可使味覺回復。"–摘自維基百科.
