Does anyone know of a GTA merchant for this fruit? Or a vendor of the seeds or plant.

    Pretty interesting article - I found it surprising that despite "being known to Westerners since the 18th Century," and given the West's obsession with sugar (and in NA, sugar substitutes!) that it's something that I don't think many have ever heard of! But I can see where having a "mouth rave" could make a really fun party.

      I purchased my plant in Vancouver.. unfortunately cannot remember the name of the nursery. I noticed that Exotica has the plant in stock as well. http://www.floraexotica.ca

        I am extremely curious to try this as well... I have seen this previously in the NYT. They quote $2/berry but I would be willing to pay even more than that... god knows what I pay for my other drugs.

          here is a good website that lists sellers of the plant and fruit: http://www.miracletaste.com/index.php...

          i just purchased a 3 gallon plant from jene's. my fingers are crossed that the plant will do well in humid texas weather.
