I'd reach out to John Morton. He has so many rare varieties. I've never heard of that one particularly, but worth a shot seeing if he has it. The Plinia and Myrciaria grower group on Facebook is another good place to ask as well.
Froot Farms is a family owned/operated edible plant nursery, apiary, and composting site in Christmas, FL.

Pretty sure it is a variety name from a big propagator of Plinia in Taiwan. I just canít remember his name though but he also has Plinia Red Pouch and Red Crystal that is more popular here in the USA.

That makes sense it comes from the taiwan tiger of plinia
While more giant red crystal seed has been imported, thatís only from 3 years max so no fruiting specimens in the US yet. So more popular because it was what was sold more.

More well known would have been better for me to say of the other varieties due to them being imported in higher quantities.

Here is the guy that Iím pretty confident that supplies seeds to the USA of that particular Plinia variety.I think he has posted seeds for sale here on TFF before. As to finding a plant I would message Bellamy Trees or Anderson Tropicals. John Morton and Jason Dev of Fruitsy Farms  are some others that might be growing it too, both of them sell on eBay too.

I just happened to find a nice looking extra Burgundy in my collection if it doesn't work out with Bellamy.
