Anyone know where I can get "Miracle Fruit"

Does anyone know where to get a hold of Synsepalum dulcificum, aka "miracle fruit?" Here's a NY Times link about it. It looks pretty cool. Would like to give it a try.

  1. I'm pretty sure they sell it out of FL Would love to get my hands on this too, if you want to split an order. Minimum with shipping is like $86, for 20 pieces. If anyone else wants to get in on it, that would be cool too. Really don't need or want 20.

    1. re: homesmax

      I bought them from that website and they took almost 10 months to arrive! they were great and it was fun (definitely do strawberries and tabasco). I have freidns who did both and apparently the tablets work just as well.

      1. re: arose

        I found some fruits, tablets and trees on Ebay. Not sure how good they are.
        Good Luck!

    2. Sounds like some kind of drug (or blowfish) except it acts locally on your tongue. If you get your hands on some, I'd like to get a hold of a couple.

      1. I ordered some of the tablets a few months ago from this website
        They were really fun. One package of tablets only cost $15 plus shipping.
        The reason I got tablets was because it was for a present & the berries don't keep.
