I was wondering what plants grow well with the Jamaican cherry tree (also known as the Panama berry, strawberry tree, and Muntingia calabura)? Is there an established guild that people recommend that includes this tree? Thank you!

Hello Giulianna

I added your thread to the polyculture and fruit tree forums in hopes that it will be seen by more people and hopefully you will receive a response!

It sounds like an interesting tree

Good Luck!

I would go with the usual mix
1) Nitrogen Fixer
2) Mint/Thyme Family
3) Onion Family
4) Carrot Family

You can put another 3ft-6ft berry plant next to it.
