Honolulu, HI(Zone 11)

This plant grows wild in the forest in Hawaii. The flowers are glorious and the scent is indescribable. The fruit is bright orange and when cut open, there is very little pulp; the creatures of the forest love this fruit. I have tried to grow the plant from seed but it is taking forever. I must be doing something wrong. Any advice?
There is no nursery or garden shop that sells this plant already grown.
In a way, I envy people living on the mainland. There are so many plants that we cannot grow here in Hawaii : (
