Isn't that just lovely? I bought one of these yesterday - we only went for couple of bags of seed compost! However, this tree was only 5.00 in the sale, so I snapped it up. I've known about them for years and always fancied one, so it's now out by the back door, ready to go up to the octagonal greenhouse later on. Doing a bit of reading about, I find that the petals are edible as well as the fruit; it's not very hardy (coming from Brazil), so I'll keep it under glass. I read too that it may need another for good pollination, but I'll see how I go with this one. I've never tasted the fruit, but I believe it can be eaten raw in fruit salads, also cooked, and has a sweet, fresh taste.
It's always nice to try something new and different, especially if it's half price LOL
