I bought a jabo with some bark damage at the trunk. Is there something I should do to prevent it from rotting in the future? Or is it fine to leave it like this? It has been growing nicely otherwise.



Maybe clear away the dirt around the wound.
How deep is the cut?

Wound seems deep, I dug down 3Ē and it was missing part of the bark all the way down. I didnít dig further fearing roots may be disturbed. I was unaware of the missing bark until I bought it home since it was wrapped in trash bags for the journey.

should grow right out of it, they swallow wounds like the blob...

i got some with really bad wounds and they seem to heal with no help...

but i'm sure unlucky trees can decline in rare cases...i'd probably just leave it alone, and try not to get that part saturated too much...

I paid I think $200 or so for my 25 gallon red jabo (not the easiest thing to find) and it began fruiting in December and was planted last July 2018.

Does anyone water their potted jaboticabas through saucer/kiddie pool/stock tank below the pot? Instead of watering from the top let water soak up through bottom since Jabos like wet feet?

Thanks yea I ended up going to a couple of different places ended up with a 45 believe itís sabrah. Didnít have fruit or flowers but looks like itís big enough to start any moment.

I wanted to post an update, I placed a saucer under red jabo from plantogram about a week ago. Newer leaves are broader and longer, it must like its feet wet. Sabara isnít showing any noticeable difference but new leaves are pushing.

Something is eating my jabo leaves in a half circle, mostly young growth. I donít see any leaf cutter bee around. Is there a way to prevent it from happening?

If you were in Florida it probably would be the Sri Lankan Weevil
which is active at night. I hope you don't have them out there and
never get them.
I sprayed allot of poison on them and finally found one that works.( for a while)

Do many people prune their jabos? I have done some thinning after a Brazilian friend recommended it - and the tree is pushing a TON of fast growth. Long branches and big lines of new leaves, that are much bigger than the older ones.

I am in SoCal, hopefully it hasnít reached here yet. On that note, could this be one? I found it under topsoil in my jabo pot.


Edit: found a picture of it online, seems like a ten lined June beetle, also harmful.

Can someone help me with my 8/9 y.o. Sabara? Tree fruits but only 1-2x/year with a smaller yield (considering its size). I know it needs pruning so I took out a lot of the lower branches and the smaller branches growing off the trunks inside the tree.

Should I keep pruning the lower branches? Thin it out at the middle? Leave it and see how it fruits since pruning? I'm really not sure! Pictures are before pruning, after pruning, then inside the tree. Thanks!

Hey BR! You've done a good job so far. Just need to make sure the center of the tree gets the most light for a good crop. The "haircut" should give you a nice subsequent crop. Make sure to prune any branch pointing inward towards the center. The tree will rebound quickly and quite possibly fruit.

P.s you could cut the fat bottom branch if you're a fan of symmetry.

Thanks for the great advice Chris. I made some cuts today but still some more to go. I don't think I have the heart to cut that fat bottom branch, haha.

Expect another picture from me when it's trimmed up some more!

Has anyone grown sabara from root cutting? I have a fresh cutting from a mature tree. What is the expected time for a grafted sabara to fruit?

I have a large Sabara Jaboticaba plant apparently grown from a cutting, but I didn't do it myself so I cant say 100%. However I have talked to FlyingFoxFruits a lot and I was told Jaboticabas can be rooted from cuttings but that they are difficult and even he has had trouble.

I should have been more clear. I have a cutting of a root sucker with leaves and roots coming off a mature plant. I'm pretty sure that is what it is unless it was a buried low branch. Either way it has roots and leaves. It is only a few days old. I read that cuttings do not wilt for a long time and sometimes flush growth without growing roots so I guess I will be waiting a while to find out if it worked.

it's true!  difficult to root if you don't know what you're doing, but easy to do if you know what's up...it's all about climate control, and pH...gotta have cool temps below 92F and subdued lighting, and low pH
