Is anyone growing Tortoise Berry (Muraltia spinosa, Nylandtia spinosa)??

I know where to get seeds, but they are not usually viable and my luck with them has been abismal. I would like to find a few plants and am willing to trade. I have a mostly random assortment of rare species. Tortoise Berry is reportedly invasive on the California coast and was introduced to stop erosion as I recall. Please PM if you have this.

I have a 3 year old tree and I rarely use any antifungals, but I noticed a small branch was being attacked by a black (assuming fungal) patch that started a few nodes away from the tip of said branch and caused it to die back. Any ideas? I know it's pretty rare, but figured someone else has to be growing it.

I am interested in learning new strategies for germinating Sideroxylon species and any other facts about their cultivation and use. Particularly Sideroxylon grandiflorum and well as any North or South American species with edible fruit.

How many years till fruiting for Byrsonima crassifolia is considered average? My tallest is now about 6 feet tall and I have found little substantial information on the average year for fruiting from a germinated seed.

Any info would be appreciated.

For now at least local Central Florida pick up only. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.
Paypal only at this time please.
