Wanted: peanut butter fruit seeds or seedlings

I'm looking to buy peanut butter fruit seeds or seedlings. Either Bunchosia glandulifera or Bunchosia argentea

I've also fresh seeds of  bunchosia glandulifera.
They germinate easily and fruit in about 1 year

Why people eat this. To me useless. This is grown in hedges here. Like a weed.

Satha, the fruit is tasty and extremely healthy.
Don't get fooled by the fact that it's a humble tree.
This fruit is grossly undervalued and has a big potential in terms of health benefits.

The phytochemical analysis of bunchosia fruit extract showed the presence of several bio-active compounds with antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammation activities.

Can you imagine a content of 16mg of lycopene /100g of fruit?  :P

yes! and It's very tasty if you harvest it at complete ripeness when fruit becomes fully red with soft creamy flesh

Growing one now. Too immature for fruit yet, but I'll be happy to share seeds once it does.
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

since then, its not put out any new growth
and the leaves look kind of droopy.

how much sun and water do they like ??

will they fruit OK in part shade ?

I bought 2 plants last year, one was a cutting that is from last year and the other is a seedling
from last year. The cutting fruited real heavy earlier in the year and I got over 75 fruit. I planted it
under a large tree and it gets only a little direct sunlight per day. It has very dark green leaves.
The seedling I planted in full sun and the leaves are not as dark. It has had a few fruit on. Irma hit my
place pretty hard and the leaves were battered along with both plants left leaning. Currently the seedling is
flowering real heavy and also has a great new flush. It is not as dark green as the cutting that is
'mostly shaded but both trees are thriving and fruiting in one year.
