Wtb jaboticaba larger pot size
« on: July 11, 2018, 01:57:33 PM »
Trying to cut back a few years to fruit. If anyone knows of a nursery or has one in south Florida that has nice 15-25 gallon (bigger if really nice) jaboticaba sabara or red please let me know.

You want to check with a nursery that can buy from Zill's HPP. Sometimes they have 15 gal trees for sale, but I haven't been up there in a couple of years.

For a while during the late 2000's and early 2010's, there was a surplus of these, and fruiting jabo trees were going for under $100 on the wholesale market. Then someone came and bought everyone out. Prices skyrocketed and availability bombed.
