Default Thinking about a Gran Nain

Anyone growing a Gran Nain? I live on the Gulf Coast of Alabama and am thinking about buying one or 2 pups if I can find them. Was also wondering about the Dwarf Namwah. I already have Saba, Orinoco, Basjoo and a young Raja Puri and would like to add something new to my yard.
Any suggestions on these would be welcome.
Thanks
Bo

You can't go wrong with any of those. Raja puri is another along with Ice Cream. Semi-hardy and good tasting fruit.
