It's called a jaboticaba. They taste like A cross between a lychee and a grape. I used to work at a tropical botanic garden and we had a small grove of them. They make good jelly. They are one of my favorite fruits and I hope to grow a couple one day.

Need a LOT of water and heat...
Tropical humid climate... may be ok in Florida?
I dropped the idea myself.
