Growing local

Doug, when we were at Dianne's place, you had some small fruits which you said came from a tree which was fairly hard to come by. They tasted quite good, and I took a few seeds home. Do you remember what that fruit tree was called? I'm putting in the seeds and would like to label them as something other than 'that-nice-fruit-that-Doug-brought-to-Dianne's'.

Hi Barbara, the fruit was guabiju.

The botanical name is

 Myrcianthes pungens. They sprout pretty well, I have about 50 seedlings popping up so if they don't work I can give you a plant some time in the future
