Watch for very hot days on fruit that is nearly ready as they can get bad sunburnt on trees with little leaf cover | Rob White - Adelaide, SA 15-Dec-2005

Be patient with this one as I have had one for five years and now finally fruited. Tastes yummy like Mangosteen!!!. Growing tips - Keep well watered in dry summer weather and don't panic if most leaves drop each spring as new leaves develop quickly. | Dennis Ting - Melbourne, VIC 28-Dec-2005

The small leaf jaboticaba is delicious, so we decided to try the large leaf as well, though we know we have to wait several years for the fruit.
Tried the fruit in Tropical Fruit World, and it was very tasty, considerably larger than the small-leaf jaboticaba. We found, however, that it does not keep well and should be eaten straight after picking.
