I don't mean to be a Debbie downer, but, I  have a Barbados cherry and the fruit just isn't very good.  Like an unripe raspberry.  Vitamin C is very bitter to the taste and the cherries have loads of it.

I bought a 5gal from Mimosa last summer and it produced some fruits this year.  the fruits were mild sweet with some tartness but not bitter.  you get fruits rather quickly from flower to full ripe stage, maybe 2-3 weeks.  on the negative side there are 3 fairly large seeds in each fruit.

they grow very fast.  you could probably save some $$ by getting a smaller tree.  I paid $27 for 5gal.
