Hello wondering if anyone can tell me are the Mekong giant fruit edible?? Seems I can't get a definite answer... Some sites say ornamental..others say edible...

Also can someone point me to a place where I can buy some Mekong Giant plants... In the 3'-4 ft range...

Thanks in adavance..

Edible yes, good no. Because it is ornamental it will be full of seeds. I bought mine from Plant Delights nursery, but I was disappointed when it didn't come back after a very mild winter.
