Hi Lissa, I went to the Ecobotanica fruit tree course at Linda's house and she is growing them. I also saw them for sale from Daly's for a fairly reasonable price - I am keen to try a couple myself. Those and a jabotica and Daly's have both (sp?). Sorry, I don't know anyone else who has them. Jo
Ok, I've done it again- this is an old post! I'm blaming the iPhone. :)

Happy to have an old posting revived Jo :)

I have one growing at the moment in a large pot. It seems to be thriving. Dries out during the week and gets a water at the weekend and that seems to suit it. I really need to add more soil to the pot which means lifting the plant and the existing soil to add more underneath. A tricky maneuver at the best of times, so I've been putting it off.

Good to know that Linda has them. If I get desperate I might be able to get cuttings from her in the future.
