Hi Mitch,
I have a small one growing - just shooting new growth now. Nowhere near fruiting age though. I had one curl up on me last year - I think its not so hardy against phytopthera? Seems to like full sun.
The only ones I know of that are fruiting are at Frobidden Fruits and a few members from the Sub-Tropical Fruit Club here. I know there are also a few in FNQ - Botanical Ark and others...

BJ.. From the image's i have seen the leave's look very thin not like other Eugenia species so maybe not cold hardy at all?. I have just potted up four seedlings and have them in part shade, at the moment they look very healthy. My plan is to get them to put on as much growth as possible this summer and maybe over-winter them in a protective structure. For me this is the one plant i really wana fruit and try.

They are reported to grow well here, even in the valleys to the north west of town. I also have a E. Myrcianthes (Hexachlamys edulis?) which is supposed to be similar, but more cold tolerant. It hates prolonged periods of rain though (It had a near-death experience in the recent soakings)...
