JABOTICABA

Jaboticaba fruiting on stemBotanical Name: Myrciaria cauliflora var. Sabara

The new growth is a coppery colour along with their beautiful honey scented flowers makes it a very ornamental tree. Bears heavy crops of quality fruit that can be eaten fresh from the tree. Often fruiting up to 3 times per year. Time from flowering to fruit being ready to eat is only 30 days. More Information: California Rare Fruit Growers Association.

Question & Answer

Hi I purchased 4x Small leaf Jaboticaba's from Daley's and the plants have put on new growth but the old and new leaves look like they're getting eaten by some pest or bug. I can't find any information about this on the web. Have you experienced this before? From: SOUTHPORT QLD

No I havn't ever noticed any bugs that eat the Jaboticaba. I cant offer any advice unless I know what is the problem. If they are only small trees I would see if you can see what is eating the leaves and manually remove them.

Jaboticaba

Painfully slow growing. I had to wait 8 years before mine fruited but boy, once they get started! Fruit is like a leathery skinned, musky grape. Makes a great wine. Do not allow plant to dry out. Protect from insects and don't hold you breath. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 04-Feb-2006

Jaboticaba

Makes the most wonderful Jaboticaba Jelly. Leaves can go very pale in hot weather - don't worry - all is well !! | Michelle Gregory - Samford, Brisbane, QLD 01-Mar-2006

Jaboticaba

The large leaf variety is a much faster grower than the small leaf variety. Grown in pots with constant watering cropping will start within a few years | Richard Walter - Wollongong, NSW 23-Nov-2006

Jaboticaba

Very cold tolerant. Took two nights of 23 deg. F. and is coming back strong from tip to trunk. | Carlos Monzon - Bakersfield, CALIF 31-Mar-2007

Jaboticaba

I have had 2 lots of fruit now on my small leafed plant, they are absolutely beautiful to eat, they are like an aromatic lychee and hits the top of my list for most desirable fruit. My Yellow Jaboticaba plants fruit is not worth eating, but lovely plant | David O'bryan - Mansfield, QLD 18-Oct-2008

Jaboticaba

My fine leaf tree began bearing imediately after I installed a constant drip line that supplies water 24 hours a day with out allowing the soil to become saturated. I move the drip around so that the roots do not concentrate in one area. | Gmg Tropical Fruits - Loxahatchee, FL 04-Oct-2009

Jaboticaba

Dry leave tips? Stick enough cotton around the edge of the pot or around the soil on the boundaries of the root. | Eduardo Brandão - Rio De Janeiro, BRAZI 30-Oct-2014

Jaboticaba

Remember, jaoticaba grows in nature at river margins, so it loves constant moisture! | Eduardo Brandão - Rio De Janeiro, BRAZI 30-Oct-2014

Absolutely my favourite fruit.Cannot wait for next crop. Need to fight the birds though. My tree is only second year fruiting but neighbour has one a few years older and I have never seen so much fruit on a tree in all my life. | Lyn Castle - West Haven, NSW 20-Nov-2014

Jaboticaba 10/10

Brizzie's Edible Fruits
Update: 2588 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Jaboticaba is a terrific fruit tree for the home garden for many reasons.  It has an abundance of luscious fruit cannily hidden from scavenging birds as the fruit grows on the branches.  It is a particularly good "grazing" tree for children.  The fruit is sweet and juicy - between a grape and a lychee in flavour - and is not something you will find at the fruit shop.  It makes a wonderful screen so would be a great tree to share with the neighbours.  The branches are not so visible but have an attractive white bark.  It needs very little maintenance and the fruit seems to be untroubled by fruit fly or any other pests.  I have never pruned mine and it is a lovely dense shape,

If there is a negative it is the fact that it may take a few years before the first crop but it more than makes up for that once it starts to bear with heaps of fruit in spring and autumn.  There is also a short time between blossom and fruit.  Mine are still green but will be a beautiful dark purple within a couple of weeks.

Another bonus is that a bowl of freshly picked fruit is always a welcome gift.  Many people have never tried them but when they do they are hooked.

I wouldn't be without a jaboticaba in my garden.

I'm growing this as a hedge and am very happy.

It tends to grow upwards and I have been pulling some of the branches to the side to get it to fill out.  Very happy with the result

I prune every three or so months to keep the hedge look. After 2 years it hit approx 2 metres, my desired height.  We did a renovation at about the time, lost one and damaged another.  The damaged plant was stressed and has now started to fruit.  The others have not yet.

Very happy with the hedge, very hapy with the fruit.

My three year old loves to go and check if there are fruit and eat any that are ready

Hi Simon in sunny Brisbane.Good photos. We had one in northern NSW.Slow to start but at 5-7yrs flowered & fruited profusely.We watewred to establish when young then it really looked after itself. A very dense tree, branching more as it got older 1.5m W x 3+m H. I hope your hedge goes well, you'll probably get loads of fruit.

Rae1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2615 days 8hrs

An attractive slow-growing pretty shrub, so far. The fruit grow on the branches  and because they are hidden birds don't bother them. From the appearance of the small white flowers to picking is about 9 weeks and I can expect fruiting at least three times a year. As the fruit ripens it turns from green, through dark red to black. There is more than I can eat or give away. Fully ripe fruit has a delicious tart taste and you can become addicted. I only pick the large grape-like fruit for it is there in plenty.  This is not a sociable fruit- you have to spit out the skin and the seed which are not edible. It is the sticky white interior that we Jaboticabans love. A common name is Brazil Grape and, like the Brazil Cherry or Pitanga, it is not well known.  Unlike the Pitanga it is not a target for birds or fruifly and so does not become a weed. Rather like a Syzigium it puts forth flushes of pinkish leaves so is ornamental in its own right.  Very compac,t it does not need pruning

September 2014: Bought from a hardware store when on the throwout pile for a few dollars in June.  Looked very sad when purchased, badly pot-bound.  After some quality potting mix with plenty of organic matter and plenty of water it has performed very strongly.  An abundance of new growth on the plant came almost instantly.  Consistent performer since. Planted in a pot because of the substantial size of the plant when fully grown!

November 2014: This has continued to grow well.  Regardless of the season it still seems to put on new growth.  It is always good to be go into the yard and see your hard work is paying off and this plant is one plant that will do just that (it is always changing).  It is a long and thin plant but new growth is impressive.  Still very happy with this purchase.

I think these are small leaf one's.

They are very slow! They seem to be ok - have some burnt margins - my research indicates they don't like salinity.

At present they just sit there putting out a little new growth constantly. They do seem to be happier when their mulch is kept moist.

Nov 2010: they are now in 35L tree sacks in a fully enclosed shade house - and they have never looked better! Obviously they don't like the hot dry climate here.

Dec 2012........Have had this tree for about 8/9 years now.........and I am just getting my first crop now.  We had quite a dry spell (few months), and as soon as the rain came, it was covered in flowers, and yesterday I picked about 20 fruit the size of  20 cent peices.  I bit into the first one, and there was a very bitter taste.......but that's just the skin, and once you are inside, the pulp is delicious!!!!  The pulp seems to hold on to the seed though, so you don't get much from each fruit........but the seed is lovely to suck on.

This tree on a bank in part shade, and I never feed it........it just gets leaf litter from an avocado further up the bank.

Great tree, and very easy to look after.

Hi Msjekyll, Your garden looks lovely and lush. My jaboticaba the same age and size looks the same sort of colour in full sun, but it is putting on growth. They like a lot of water. There is some good discussion of the pros and cons of full sun and the cause of yellowing in this thread . Diana.

Bought two small-leaved Jaboticabas from Daleys years ago. Very slow-growing initially, remain nice and compact in difficult soil, but fruit once or twice a year, heavily. The only problem is that this variety (I don't think there was a choice back when i purchased them) has 2-3 large seeds, and, given that the flesh sticks to the seeds, it is hard eating. Jelly is good!

Now identified as large-leaved Jaboticaba!

Myrciaria spirito santensis var.grimal


Tried some at Tropical Fruit World (love that place!) and just had to buy a tree! I think I'll have to be patient though, apparently very slow growing and slow to fruit.

have given it lots more rain water maybe try cincturing a branch or two later in the year

have since read that it needs a lot more water than i have been giving it, so i applied wettasoil, sugarcane mulch and seasol and more water and it's rewarded me with lovely new growth. will keep up the water from now on.

Comments: - Love the intense grape-like flavour, and a very pretty small tree, delicate foliage. Mine won't be fruiting for a while. The one on the south side of my house is doing slightly better than the one on south-west. In my previous yard, the tree is almost 2m tall and still hasn't fruited after 6 years...but it will be worth it one day.

Delicious fruit, sort of grape like in taste.  Can fruit several times a year, with only short time between flowering and harvesting.  May be many years though before tree starts bearing. Planted early Feb. and has grown 2-3 inches on most tips in 2 1/2 months. I planted in a mound over an under-ground spring - so far so good!

I had a bit of trouble with this one when I first got it, the leaves where going brown at the tips. After a bit of reading, people seem to say that the plant needs a lower ph and to mix in a bit of peat moss and water with rain water, this should help. I use peat moss, pine bark and volcanic rock in my mix and it works great now, plant is green healthy and no more tip burn.
