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.
