Jaboticaba tree

    10 responses

Alison starts with ...
I planted a jaboticaba tree and within two months (and 50 degree weather) the leaves have fallen. I was careful to plant in slightly acidic soil and the tree looked beautiful when I planted it. What in the world am I doing wrong? Is there a season for this tree?

I'd say it needs more water Alison. They love water. Scratch the trunk lightly with your fingernail and if it's still green under the bark then water, water ,water and it may shoot again.

Does it have little growing buds? They look like small pointed cones. Some Jaboticaba trees go dormant but usually have small buds near the tips which will open if you keep the water up and conditions swing back in their favour. Otherwise it might have suffered from transplant shock.

Hi all
What would be the minimum distance you would plant a couple of Jaboticabas apart, a small and a big leaf one.

Thanks

Ivep they are like elderly folk and enjoy a prune or two.The sabara will out grow the grimal but with a yearly haircut to equalize thing 1.2m is alright.2m would be better however.A little intermingling is ok.

Generally out of the 10 or so main Plinias and allies grown the common yellow in Oz is considered the worst.I have tried fruit off mine and my brothers' yellow jabs and they truely disgrace themselves compared to the ordinary garden variety small leafed sabara.My 2 will soon volunteer for mulch patrol and give up their spots to better jabs like M.trunciflora.

I have the large and small leaved in the same hole. The large leaf has a taller trunk than small leaved, so they could be made to work well together.

Yellows are not worth the hassle and planting a plinia edulis is the way to go.

Trunciflora is supposed to taste like coffee berries - not the seed or bean, but the pulp...

Yellow jabots are totally delicious. As lychee is to longan so yellow is to regular jabot. The drawback is poor seed flesh ratio but then the fragrant flowers alone make growing yellow worthwhile. note the smell from the flowers is very evanescent = 36 hours

Recher can you eat the skin from the yellow jabo's?

By the way, i think litchi is far superior to longan.
