JABOTICABA - YELLOW

Jaboticaba - YellowBotanical Name: Myrciara glazioviana
Description

Yellow fruiting species with a distinctive sweet tangy flavour reminiscent of pineapple. We consider this tree a showpiece. Its lime green leaves have an unusual soft, almost powdery appearance and its beautiful golden green pendulous branches make it a worthy feature in the garden for its highly ornamental nature. The fruit of the black jaboticaba is becoming more popular and widespread (I even found some on the shelf of a local grocery store here in Lismore last week) while the yellow jaboticaba still remains a mystery to many. A prerequisite for enjoying the fruits of the Black Jaboticaba is patience. They can often take 6-7 years to come to fruit. However, we have found the Yellow Jabot produce fruit in as little as 3 years. It is a small bushy tree, usually growing to 3-4m in the subtropics of Australia, however I have seen photographs of the tree, in Brazil (its place of origin), with a couple of young boys perched high in the branches. These trees must have reached 9-10 m tall. The tree has a moderate cold tolerance but is best protected from frost. It is a suitable container grown tree in those areas that do receive frost and can be moved to a sheltered position during the cooler months. They are happy in full sun or part shade and are generally small enough to find a place in most gardens. They are relatively wind tolerant but will not enjoy salt spray. They particularly enjoy deep rich soil pH 5.5 to 6.5 but with regular nutrient application can be grown in most soil types. While the fruits have some similarities to the Black Jaboticaba, they are quite different in appearance, having a slightly furry yellow skin instead of the smooth shiny black skin. The fruit contains a gelatinous whitish pulp which has a pleasant, slightly acid flavor. A single tree will produce fruit, but cross pollination has shown to increase productivity. When planting a jaboticaba, the crown (uppermost) roots should be 2 to 3 inches higher than the surrounding soil levels to provide water runoff. Peat, compost or rotted manure may be mixed with the soil from the planting hole to improve it. The soil should be a well-aerated mixture.

Jaboticaba - Yellow

A real challenge but worth the time and effort. Very slow to establish. Needs stalking. Keep moist, good drainage, light, frequent fertilising. Delicious, unusual fruit. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 04-Feb-2006

Jaboticaba - Yellow

I bought mine just 6 months ago - and it is flowering right now, in Sydney. It is in a pot in a sunny spot in the garden. | Elke Knebel - Kingsford, sydney, NSW 11-May-2009

Jaboticaba - Yellow

Far out-performing my expectations in a pot at the moment. Has lots of lovely felt-like bright-green new growth. I thought it might be as slow as the Black Joboticaba to grow, but it is powering along almost equal to the Abiu and Peanut Butter Bush. | Bj - Brisbane, QLD 23-Mar-2010

Jaboticaba - Yellow

This is a velvety and yellow fruit, called little hair, not jabuticaba.You may notice it doesnot grow from the trunk.Its flowers are extremely fragrant but jaboticabas fruits have more juice. | Lygia - Florianopolis, SC 05-Feb-2014

Jaboticaba - Yellow (Seedling) 10/10

BJ's Edible Fruits
Update: 2103 days 1hrs

Comments: -

This is probably my favourite shrub to look at. Beautiful velvetty lime green new foliage, darkening to a deep green. Brances and trunks are quite rough barked, so gather moss, which is quite ornamental too. It tends to grow up only a little every flush, then the branches all head for the ground - makes it a bit tough to mow around, but very ornamental.


It is in a bit more sun than it probably likes, so is a bit leggy, but is putting on new leaves now and is starting to flower, so hoping for fruit this summer or next (2011-12)

 Very slow growing, delicate tree. Withstands cold Sydney nights reasonably well. Has produced flowers every year but only in winter and so the immature fruit drops off every time. Perhaps this tree requires warm weather year round to produce fruit? Will wait a few more seasons.

Bought this plant from the BOGI fair with high hopes for some delicious fruit not too far down the track (3yrs apparently compared to 7 for the black). NOTE 19.12.12: This sat looking the same without new growth for about 2yrs and then up and died.

Interesting little tree. Still too immature to fruit. I bought it because I also have the black variety. It hasn%u2019t done a great deal since planting but it was planted late in the season so spring might see some advancement.

The idea of fruit growing from the trunk intrigues me. Pretty tree. I had some iron deficiency after only 3 months (green veins, yellow leaves) so added chelates.

Sept 2013 Very slow grower however put out some new leaves even over winter. Responds very well to trace element application and regular water.

Amazingly beautiful ornamental tree, the lime green fresh leaves are great to look at and soft to touch.

Added bonus to see if I can get this thing to fruit here, either way it's a nice tree for ornamental purposes.
