Do they taste good? I tried a few berries and they tasted sweet but insipid, completely lacking any acid. Do you think it was the tree i picked them from? It was growing in a shady area.

Yes, they are sweet without any acidity which some people prefer so whether they are considered to taste good is somewhat subjective depending on the persons tastes. If you want something with more acidity why not just grow Surinam Cherries, easy to grow and highly acidic.

I thought the fruits tasted a bit like nata de coco. I'm already growing surinam cherries, thanks for the recommendation though!
