Customer Tips & Reviews Jaboticaba Large Leaf
Jaboticaba Large Leaf

Unanderra, NSW, Australia
One of my favorite trees - hardy, aesthetic, compact, and delicous fruits. The large leaf version tens to be less wind resistant than the small leaved version.
Rathmines, NSW, Australia
Planted December 09. Is very happy and getting new growth.Has not done anything really in last 9 months but is starting to get new growth now.Very slow growing, easily my slowest plant to grow.
