Acerola in So. Flo.

A friend wants a shrub line of acerola and I have no idea where he can get them, does anyone have a source in the southeast?
Regards,

My daughter in St. Pete got her Barbados Cherry bushes at Home Depot. Nice plants!

They seem to be carried readily in any nursery that sells fruiting trees and shrubs - is that not the case in your neck of the woods?

You can root cuttings. They take a while to root but once they do they take off.
I'll send you a pm about cuttings for sale/trade

HD and Lowes sells big ones for like $65(?) or was it $99. Flamingo nursery sells 3 gal ones as well but I'm not sure their open with the covid19 restrictions.
