Juniper Berry Benefits: Growing ConditionsJuniper Berry Benefits: Growing Conditions

Juniper Berry plants are most common in the Northern Hemisphere and they come in a few different varieties. You can tell these varieties apart by their heights, as they are either one and a half feet tall, four feet tall, six feet tall, or twenty-five feet tall. So, these plants can vary from the sizes of small shrubs to large trees. Since they are similar to conifers, they have needles or scales that are useful for helping the plant survive droughts. But, this means that the Juniper plant can’t handle being over watered. If they have wet soil that doesn’t drain well, they will suffer. So, you should never need to water your plant unless there have been severe drought conditions. Although Junipers prefer acidic soil, they can grow in a variety of soil types. Also, they will prefer to be exposed to full sun.

Juniper Berry Benefits: Harvesting Your Juniper Berries

First, make sure that you do in fact have an edible variety of juniper before you begin your harvest. The most common edible variety of juniper is Juniperus communis, but there are many varieties out there that are poisonous or bitter tasting. After you are sure you have the correct tree, you will want to pick the soft berries that are a blue/black color. Make sure that you don’t pick unripe berries as they won’t dry properly. Then, you can dry your berries by allowing them to set inside at room temperature for approximately three weeks. Once the berries are dried you will need to remove any berries that are brown or have viable entrance holes. These berries will have bugs living inside them. Lastly, you can either use your berries immediately or store them in an airtight jar for up to a year.

Juniper Berry Benefits: Caution for Anyone that has Apple Trees

You may want to hold off on planting a juniper berry tree/shrub if you have an apple tree. There is a fungus that can infect your apple tree called cedar-apple rust. It will begin growing on the juniper trees or shrubs first. Then, the fungus can make its way to any of the apple trees nearby.

But, we can still discuss how they are grown and harvested.

Apple Pie Spice Uses: Where Do Spices Come From?

First, we have the cinnamon herb, which comes from the bark of the laurel tree. This process is a bit complicated, but it begins by growing the tree for two years. After, the tree is cut down and the following year little shoots will appear. These shoots will have a thin layer of bark on the inside. This bark is collected, dried, and used as the spice we all know and love.

Second, we have lemon peel powder. These lemons grow on trees in warm, full sun conditions. Once the tree is about three years old, it will begin to produce fruit. These fruits are harvested once they are yellow and firm with a slightly glossy appearance. Then, the skin of these fruits will be dried and ground to be used for lemon peel powder.

Next, ginger is a root that can be grown using roots that have visible green “eyes”. These “eyes” will sprout long stems and below the dirt, the root will grow larger. This plant prefers nutrient rich soil that can hold moisture. However, the set up needs to be free draining to prevent over saturating the plant. About eight months after planting, you can dig up the ginger root.

Additionally, cloves are dried flowers that grow on clove trees. These trees prefer a wet, tropical climate and can’t survive below fifty-nine degrees Fahrenheit. These flowers are picked before they have the chance to open. Then, they are sun dried for about five days.

Finally, nutmeg is produced from a nutmeg tree, which creates yellow fruits that are similar to apricots. Inside the fruit are purple/brown seeds that are covered in a red skin. The skin, which is used to make mace, is removed and the seed can be ground into nutmeg.

Lemon Peel Benefits: Growing ConditionsLemon Peel Benefits: Growing Conditions

Lemon trees require a warm climate and are quite sensitive to the cold. The tree will become inactive below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the fruit dies after being exposed to lower than 28 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. So, they will need protection from frost, which can be helped by ensuring that your tree has enough water. Additionally, lemon trees should be provided with full sunlight. While these trees are temperature sensitive, they are able to tolerate many different types of soils. However, these trees will prefer soil that is slightly acidic and well-draining. Further, you should plant your tree in a hole that is slightly shorter than the root ball. Then, replace the dirt and tamp firmly. 

For those in the United States, anyone that doesn’t live in a climate like Florida or California may want to plant your lemon tree indoors. As long as the pot is fairly large and the soil is well draining, the tree should be comfortable as an indoor plant. However, a typical lemon tree has the potential to grow to be 20 feet tall, so you will likely want to prune your tree as it gets too large.

However, the lemons require hot summers to develop the fruit. So, it may be less likely for an indoor tree to produce fruit if you don’t bring your plant outside in the summer. Luckily, there are dwarf lemon tree options, like the Meyer lemon, that are more likely to bear fruit. Since your plant will be inside, it is unlikely that pollinators, like bees, butterflies, and other bugs, can get to your plant. Instead, you can use a paintbrush or cotton swab to rub pollen within the flower. This increase your chance of fruit and lead to a better harvest.
