NO SHIPPING TO ARIZONA, DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE IN ARIZONA. For Auction, I have one seedling of a White jaboticaba (Plinia aureana) , rare fruit tree from Brazil. White Jaboticaba also known as “Jabuticaba Branca” in Brazil. This rare fruit tree was almost lost in the wild due to habitat destruction, but luckily rare fruit collectors found specimens, and ensured its survival by distributing seeds to growers. This species is somewhat precocious has large leaves, and is easy to grow if you have acid pH. this species can fruit in as little as 4yrs, but usually takes about 5-7yrs from seed. The tree will eventually exceed 10ft if planted in the ground, but that can take over 20yrs easily (at least in Central FL, zone 9a). They can fruit in a pot for many years, but will eventually require something larger than 25 gallons after about 10yrs with proper care. I have seen them produce about 4 crops in one year, but usually there are only 2-3 substantial crops. The trees are extremely ornamental with beautiful large leaves, and deep red new growth. The fruit doesn’t ever turn purple or red, it just stays green, or turns slightly yellow green. The birds are less likely to notice and steal the fruits! They can fruit very well in full sun or full shade, but be sure to give them plenty of water, and low pH. They hate salt water, or excessive amounts of Nitrogen. The seedling for sale is the one in the photo Shipping is anywhere in the USA, but NOT ARIZONA Shipping is via USPS priority mail. THE TREE WILL SHIP WITH THE ROOTS WRAPPED IN PLASTIC I CAN NOT SHIP OUTSIDE OF USA (except for Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and Bahamas) I USUALLY SHIP WITHIN 2-4 DAYS OF RECEIVING PAYMENT thanks for visiting this page!
