Earlier this week, we told you about Miracle Connect, the upstart company that deals Miracle Fruit like it’s crack. By the looks of this sign at the Garden of Eden on 23rd Street, the berry, which turns sour tastes sweet, may be going mainstream. They’re going for $5 a pop, but even at that price you won’t get speedy service. When we called the store, we were told to check back in two weeks. The 14th Street store was also out — an employee told us she’d take our name and let us know when our order came in, in four to six weeks. In the meantime, you can hear Miracle Fruit farmer Curtis Mozie of Katzman Produce push the stuff — he’ll be at one of the stores (check Garden of Eden’s Website for the exact location) — on June 28.
