Jaboticaba availability

    7 responses

tom starts with ...
Before committing to buying a jaboticaba I wanted to try the fruit, but I just can't find it anywhere, not even jams of it.
I am also assuming it will grow well in Sydney.

Tom I had one in SE Vic so you will have no troubles except Japoticabas are very slow growing in Southern states, but probably worth the wait if you are a young buck! :-)

I beleive the fruit spoil very quickly (by 4 hours they are not great) so you might find it hard to buy them fresh.
If you search this site you can learn a fair bit about them, and I remember somebody had managed to find some fresh ones in QLD, but said they were poor quality.
I am in Perth, and although I am yet to have any fruit, I love the look of the Jab tree and thoroughly recommend them.

The fruit do last a few days and you see them in markets in punnets occasionally.Broken ones like if the skin tears at the stem during picking or there is an insect bite make them them go off faster.It only takes a week or two to go from flowers to ripe fruit.They are pretty sweet and you bite the skin,suck the white slurry out and swallow seeds and all like passionfruit.

Gus i have two larger trees that produce heavily and frequently and 2 smaller ones just beginning.The 2 yellow ones don't count as they won't fruit.
I am pretty lazy Gus and do nothing but eat them fresh.If there is more than say 5kg, chums and family are delighted to come and get them.Right now I'mup tothe eyeballs in bananas,paw paws, beans and until Friday arv miracle fruit.I have been relieved of around 10kg,of bananas,6 ripe paw paws,5kg of beans and masses of miracle fruit very quickly but I should do more.I do dry excess chilis and paw paws at times but I try to limit my garden and fruit processing time.

I am so envious.
It must be great to grow so much fruit, although i know what the processing is like. If I get too many zuchini I get a little bored of cooking them.
We got a juicer recently which is pretty handy, but probably not much use with a jaboticaba and there big seeds.

Gus I have a fairly big yard and maybe half of the trees are old enough to fruit.I seem to get a temporary glut of fruit like avos and mandarines and a permanent lime glut.With vegies and herbs I often have more than I can use but I just plant my summer and winter vegies each season and end up giving most away.
