Produces Tons of Sweet And Tangy Fruit

Provide your garden with exotic flare with the Jaboticaba Tree. The Jaboticaba, also known as the 'Brazilian Grape Tree,' produces tons of dark colored fruits between the sizes of grapes and plums on its bark.

The tropical Jaboticaba, or Jabuticaba, is a delight to watch as white fuzzy blooms burst among the tree's older bark, covering the tree with a white sea of petals. Soon after blooming, the cottony blooms quickly become replaced by dark savory fruit. Jaboticabas start growing with light green skin before turning a dark hue of purple.

The grape-like fruit almost covers the entire tree, giving it a unique look. Once the fruit is picked, it's often instantly enjoyed as a fresh snack. Jaboticabas have a sweet flavor with an acidic zing, similar to a muscadine grape.

With a skin that's slightly thicker than a grape's and white flesh on the inside that's soft and juicy, Jaboticabas are a pleasure to bite into. Their sweet juice has an unrivaled flavored that's perfect for making jams and wines.

Jaboticaba trees will transform your garden into a tropical paradise with their refreshing fruit and unwavering beauty. Beautiful lush, green leaves stay on this tree all year, but the show really starts once the Jaboticaba Tree starts to shed its old bark.

Layers of older grey bark shed away, revealing layers of younger bark with light tan and beige hues. The colorful bark pops against other darker green hues in the landscape causing it to become the center of attention with its stunning colors.

If you don't live in a tropical area place your Jaboticaba Tree in a container and bring it indoors during the colder months. This low maintenance tree thrives in both containers and in the ground. Simply give your trees some water and prepare yourself for tons of delicious fruit and brilliant colors.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Jaboticaba Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Jaboticaba Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Jaboticaba Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Jaboticaba Tree again after the transplant is complete.

how soon does this tree produce berries?
linda d on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can take 3 years in order to produce.
How long does it take to mature ?
Susan P on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are very slow growers. They only grow 6 inches per year.
My tree has been in the ground for 2 months, and it's still just a stick. How soon will I see something other than the stick?
Patricia A on Jul 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree doesn't grow particularly fast. It also shouldn't be pruned. The leaves take a long time to form, but there should be leaves on the tree already. If there are no leaves, it might simply be in a dormant state if the stick is still able to bend (which means there is water in it). Make sure it doesn't get more than a couple of hours of direct sunlight if it's still a stick - and avoid afternoon sun. Summer months can be brutal if you're in the south.
Are these grafted to other rootstock? and which type?
M. R on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe they are grafted. I'm surprised that FGT didn't answer this question, they would seem to have better knowledge about it than I would.
What variety are these trees? 'Sabará, a form of M. cauliflora, 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. Early in season; bears 4 crops a year. Susceptible to rust on flowers and fruits.

'Paulista'–fruit is very large, with thick, leathery skin. The tree is a strong grower and highly productive though it bears a single crop. Later in season than 'Sabará' Fruits are resistant to rust. Was introduced into California in 1904.

'Rajada'–fruit very large, skin green-bronze, thinner than that of 'Paulista'. Flavor is sweet and very good. The tree is much like that of 'Paulista'. Midseason.

'Branca'–fruit is large, not white, but bright-green; delicious. Tree is of medium size and prolific; recommended for home gardens.

'Ponhema'–fruit is turnip-shaped with pointed apex; large; with somewhat leathery skin. Must be fully ripe for eating raw; is most used for jelly and other preserves. Tree is very large and extremely productive.

'Rujada'–fruit is striped white and purple.

'Roxa'–an old type mentioned by Popenoe as being more reddish than purple, as the name (meaning "red") implies.

'Sao Paulo' (probably M. jaboticaba)–tree is large-leaved.

Sherry L on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We carry the SABRA variety.
Hi, i understood in zone 8 this tree would not survive outside, but can be grown inside ?
Nina M on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine did great over-winter in my sun room in zone 8, no leaf drop or signs of stress. It lives outside the rest of the year. There is a large one living in the Botanical Garden's greenhouse that fruits, so I'm optimistic mine will fruit one day.
Are the jabotica trees you're shipping already providing fruits?
Franco on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it can take 8 years to produce.
