So this Lepisanthes is white at maturity?  What is the fruit flavor like -- sweet, sour, astringent?  Does this one tend to a tree or more shrub-like?

I sent you a PM about adding some seeds to my existing order but I haven't heard back from you.  Is this species dioecious or monoecious?  What I can find online about it seems inconclusive.
