is there more to that article for jstor subscribers?

I'm wondering about the taste, like is it worth collecting seeds and planting.

Not worth much of anything, IMO. It grows wild in Malaysia. Extremely sour when green and unripe; extremely sour, juicy, and fibrous when ripened. The unripe fruits are usually harvested and included in salads (mostly "rujak") with other fruits. They're also commonly pickled. Also called "mempelam" by locals.
