Miracle Fruit?

Has anyone tried the miracle fruit in the DC metro area or know of any Miracle Fruit Party gatherings that is occurring locally?

Am interested in attending and/or finding out where I can purchase.

      This is a link for a NY Times article on Miracle Fruit. Just as Denise said below, it is a perishable fruit that you eat and changes the way your tongue perceives sour foods. Lemons start to taste like lemondrop candies, goat cheese like cheesecake. I am just curious to see if there was anyone else that has tried this fruit or know of anyone hosting a miracle fruit party locally. I would be interested in trying.

    2. Wow, you learn something new every day. I just googled "miracle fruit." Fascinating stuff. You put some of it on your tongue, and for the next 30 minutes or so, food tastes differently. Sour foods such as lemons taste sweet.
