Mercola just had an article about the natural sweetener from Africa called Miracle Fruit. It is said to coat the tongue with sweetener so that anything eaten after that for 2 hours also tastes sweet. One guy said he could eat several very sour limes after eating a bit of the fruit. The plants apparently grow best in warmer states, so I decided not to try to get any for myself just yet, but I did find a source for the seeds, in case anyone else would like to try to grow them. This source charges a few dollars for one seed, but $48 [plus about $5 shipping cost] for a hundred seeds. If anyone wants to send me a complimentary fruit when your tree grows, that would be nice. But they grow about 15 feet tall in probably a few years. I read that they can be trimmed and grown indoors. Here is a U.S. source.
