Can't advise on jaboticaba but I can advise that my Bouea macrophylla  maprang variety "mayong chid" just had
a 30kg crop which consisted of 4 seperate flowering events and it will usually have 2 crops per year

Still no ID for this one

"but they will bounce back with some TLC, and chelated Fe (and fertilizer)" so you did it!

what is TLC?

what fertilizer in that situation?

TLC is   tender loving care

They don't like to be too wet.They will rot if they are exposed to too much water

They will also grow after being dug out of the ground or cro barred out in this case and will
grow readily from root cuttings

  Mine are about an inch in diameter but it's only the second year of Fruiting and growing in a pot so
 should get bigger over time

 They are certainly tough and will grow from cuttings just like these from a red hybrid

I think Mike T posted photos of the same fruit a few days ago trying to ID it. Doesn't look like any canistel i've ever seen here, but it's possible.

Yes he did Oscar but didn't get any ID so hopefully someone might know this time

Collected this fruit a few weeks ago and cannot identify.It has a strong honey taste
and the fruit are always more elongated than anything else I've seen.I suspect it's
Pouteria campechiana but which variety

Mine tend to have fruit when we have a dry spell and then get a lot of rain.They also need to
be in full sun for best results .A good dose of fertilizer might also help

I don't think he intends to sell from this site hence the link to his site and the no reply to questions

when they are red

The picture of Stevo's red pineapple is considered ornamental herw.  Not say its 100% inedible (or cant be eaten) but once tasted you will see why we consider it an ornamental.

The OP's picture looks normal at the stage it is at for an edible fruit (variety unknown)..

  Mine tasted just like a normal pineapple

 It is probably characteristic for that species

Yep chop it at the height of the ledge and keep it to that height
