5 year old Jaboticaba 'Sabara' known as Brazillian Grapetree is a tropical fruit that’s native to Brazil. It’s easy to see why it’s also called the Brazilian grapetree, as the fruit looks like large dark purple grapes. The curious and quite striking thing about the jaboticaba is that the fruit is carried on the trunk and inner limbs rather than on the ends of branches.
Jaboticaba flowers are white and fluffy and during the peak summer flowering season the flower covered stems are stunning.
'Sabara' is the most prized and most often planted. The fruit is small, thin-skinned and sweet. The tree is of medium size, precocious, and very productive. Fruits mainly during autumn, though there can be multiple fruiting times throughout the year on well fed and watered plants when grown in tropical environment. The antioxidant rich fruit can be eaten fresh or made into jams, jellies, juice and liqueur.
The trees themselves are multi-trunked and evergreen, slowly growing to around 8 m tall. They can be pruned if required.
*Not grown by me. From a local grower.
Keep sheltered from the wind. Water regularly, doesn't like to dry out.
