sungai buloh malaysia has plenty - all sizes - 4-foot ones cost rm55 upwards, 2-foot ones rm20 (or below if you bargain) and small 6 inch ones for rm6. i bought the 2-foot ones.

great for those who need to take those vile-tasting chinese medicines, dont you think?

It is $5 for the talk my friend, not for the plant:P WF is selling theirs (already fruiting ones) for $25 per pot. For 1/10 the price, it can be bought at Oh's farm but one will have to water them for at least 3 years before they can see any fruits (grown from seeds).:P/>

Have you tried rooting yours from cuttings? That might produce clones of the orginal plant and shorten the maturing process or do we need to do marcotting to produce that effect? Totally clueless here, I am:P

Can anyone here enlighten me on how miraculous eating the fruits of this plant is?

What sort of illness? Cancer etc?

How to eat the fruit? Raw? Any other parts we can consume?

no, no, it doesnt cure anything but in making whatever you eat taste good/sweet afterwards, it has its advantages. it means an alternative for diabetics who cannot take sugar, it means those who have to ingest foul tasting medication will no longer have to endure the taste. it is deemed a miracle to those who are trying to battle the bulge. imagine being able to 'indulge' in 'sweet stuff' without having to contend with the calories!

I would urge u all form a group to go Malaysia to buy if u are interested. ICA has a poster there that says a person is limited to 3 plants each from Malaysia. U can see it at bus bay area. And so far I've got no prob with the clearance. (just my 2 cent worth of thought)

I saw the plants or shd u call it trees planted along the road from Khatib to WF that quiet stretch of road there after u passed that school. No signs of any fruits yet. It's been an eye-opener.. Thx Shamrock for the fotos..

I read the same on the AVA website too and it was stated that the limit is 3 plants per person.

So far i've hand-carry in plectranthus, orchids, aloe veras, gerbera and pots of catus all attached with soil. No prob.. I even asked the custom officer (1st time) if it's okie.. they've got no prob and they even helped me make sure that it goes thru the x-ray machine safely everytime! .. haha :rolleyes:/>

If they got questions, I'll point out that it's clearly stated in the poster that we're allowed to bring in 3 plants each...
