Hi nicks It is a brailian fruit, might be you can import them. A small information on GRUMICHAMA for you. It is a large, tropical to sub-tropical shrub that grows to 15 feet. Prefers sun to part shade and rich, moist, acid soil. Will freeze at 27 degrees. Can be grown from cuttings or air-layer and will fruit from seed in 3 to 5 years. Fruit season is from April to June and may bear several times with 1 month from flower to fruit. Ripe purple-black fruit is approx. 1/2 inch in diameter with a thin edible skin and flesh is soft and sweet like a cherry. Can be eaten fresh, used in pies, jams and makes good jelly if picked before fully ripe. Source: sarasotafruit Rgds/Samson.

Thank you for the kind informations .. i think that its not available in my country so it would be better to import in my country but then there might be another type of problem that is that there might be no taker for the product.
