I bought this Cermai plant for the Herb Garden in my college in 2009.  It bore fruit once in 2010 but there was not much fruit.   I had a pleasant surprise waiting for me yesterday.  One of the janitors informed me that the tree was again bearing fruit.  I went and harvested the fruit with Hajah Kamariah and Baz at around noon.  We had a bountiful crop.  
Here is some info about this plant which is nicknamed Anggur Malaysia or Malaysian Grapes by the village folks. 
English name: Otaheite gooseberry, Malay gooseberry, Star gooseberry 
Scientific name: Phyllanthus acidus L. 
 Family: Euphorbiaceae
