Fruit native only to north America dubbed superfruit in recent years?
America (assuming we are referring to the United States of America) was colonised by European settlers who brought the Christian faith with them. America later gained independence from her European ancestors, however cultural roots remained. Islam had no influence on the "New World" as the Europeans dubbed it.

After their dubbing, it is possible they might be shown on Adult Swim or online through Viz's media partners (the Japanese subbed episodes were available on Shonen Sunday's website and Hulu), but there has been no formal announcement in this regard as of August 2012.
