Jaboticaba ID?
« on: November 20, 2016, 02:57:33 PM »
I received this jaboticaba as a white seedling from a forum member. The growth and leaves are quite different than a white given to me recently.  At first I thought it was a deficiency,  but I have grafted it on grimal and sabara and the growth remains the same. The odd thing is that the leaf margins curl under, especially in brighter light, and it is very lanky/droopy.

Very new growth



Starting to harden




Old growth



This is one of the grafted ones.

Looks interesting Rob. Looks a little like mine but mine hasn't got leaves that big yet so hard to tell. Same coloured new growth.

Hi,

It seems to me Plinia Aureana, there are many varieties of this species, here in my region in Minas Gerais, we have several varieties of P.Aureana and a lot of variation between the leaves, the fruits and the size of the trees.

Thanks, my other Aureana produces leaves that are about twice as long, pointed, pendulous at first and and no curl at the margin. Now just the wait to see if the fruits are any different.
