It's a fairly common plant which suckers VERY freely.  If you live near
Fruit & spice park in Redlands  Contact Chris Rollins at the park. Or in
W. Palm contact Gene Joiner at the Ag Extension office of the Mounts
garden.  I am sure either would be happy to provide you with a gratis
sucker.  BTW I hope your intention is not for eating curiosity as
although the fruit can be consumed it is not very "edible".

Take care,  Dean
