Jaboticaba, Jabuticaba Myrciaria cauliflora, Brazilian Grape Rare Live Fruit Tree: Growth Habit:The jaboticaba is a slow growing large shrub or small, bushy tree. It reaches a height of 10 – 15 feet in California and 12 – 45 feet in Brazil, depending on the species. The trees are profusely branched, beginning close to the ground and slanting upward and outward so that the dense, rounded crown may attain an ultimate spread as wide as it is tall. The thin, beige to reddish bark flakes off much like that of the guava. The Jaboticaba makes an attractive landscape plant and an excellent bonsai tree. Foliage: The evergreen, opposite leaves are lanceolate to elliptic, 1 – 4 inches in length and 1/2 – 3/4 inch wide. In color they are a glossy dark green with a leathery texture. Flowers: The small yellow-white flowers dramatically emerge from the multiple trunks, limbs and large branches in groups of four. It has been reported that solitary jaboticaba trees bear poorly compared with those planted in groups, which indicates that cross-pollination enhances productivity. Fruits: Jaboticaba fruit is grape-like in appearance and texture but with a thicker, tougher skin. Averages size is one inch in diameter. The gelatinous whitish pulp contains from one to four small seeds and has a pleasant flavor, similar to grapes. Fruit may be produced singly or in clusters from the ground up all over the trunk and main branches. Fresh fruit is delicious eaten out-of-hand and can be made into jellies, jams and wine. The skin is high in tannin. CULTURE Location: Jaboticaba trees will take full sun or some shade and are small enough fit into many parts of the garden landscape. They are fairly wind tolerant but do not like salty sea air. Small, young trees do best with some protection. Soil: Jaboticabas grow and fruit best in rich deep slightly acidic soil. Although it is not well adapted to alkaline soils, it may be grown successfully by mulching and applying necessary nutrient sprays containing iron. The tree is not tolerant of salty or poorly drained soil. Frost Protection: Although Jaboticabas can tolerate a few degrees of frost, they do best under frost-free conditions. ❄️ Winter Shipping = add a Heat Pack 🔥 NotesSafely shipped bare root in sterile medium.Buyer assumes risks due to state agricultural regulations and bare root shipping.Please track orders with carrier using text/email alerts and have your plant received directly from the driver to avoid damage due to extreme temperatures and/or lack of humidity, etc.To avoid risk of damage to plants during delivery, please do not place an order when extreme temperature or weather conditions are likely.❄️Winter shipping – protect your plant(s) with a 🔥Heat Pack add-on!
