Thanks Micarle - sorry to sound completely useless but the only ones i could see on ebay were from germany - how does everyone go ordering plants/seeds from overseas on ebay?? I have never bought anything from ebay and so not sure how quarantine works?

Keep an eye on Ebay, as Micarle suggested. They do come up fairly often. I purchased mine there about a year ago. Be prepared to pay a premium though.

Care to elaborate? I was rather optimistic reading reviews on how it is 'loved by both adults and children alike' and 'tastes better than any preserve.'
Not a lot of info on Randia formosa, which is actually a species of indigoberry. I'd appreciate some info from those who have grown it.

Some people love it. I yanked mine a while back. I was going to keep it just to propagate to give away to buddies, but couldnt live with myself knowing I had spread the genes of this thing around. If you like your jam packed full of seeds then you might like it.

Hi BJ,

I have one that has not fruited yet (it is doing a good job of looking pretty in part shade next to a fence). What do they taste like? Do you just not like it because of the seeds?

Thanks,

Diana.

Blackberry Jams - Randia Formosa

Paradise also have them for $12.90. But if they taste as good as some say, I can't help wonder why the fruit are not produced commercially.

I suspect that they may have a lot of seeds, but the plant is quite ornamental with nice flowers. You also need more than one plant for pollination.

Blackberry jam fruits are almost as big as cherries. The taste very much like the name said, the only thing that there are many black seeds, each one is about half of the size of a water melon seed. You may have no choice but spit them out every time you eat a fruit or remove the inside of fruits and use a strainer to remove all seeds. Nice plant by the way.

Thanks. I only have one plant anyway, so it's going to be decorative only for a while.

Anyone have any ideas if cuttings would work? I've found some big shrubs of this tree, but not sure if there is any point cutting into it? Always keen to find edible plants that will work as a middle-story in part-shade :)
Thanks heaps, Madi

The ones in the parks here get overlooked as a fruit that is not high quality.It is a nice looking plant however.
