Jaboticabaholics Anonymous
« on: February 08, 2013, 12:33:23 PM »
This is a thread for those who have a problem.  This isn't a thread for the casual jaboticaba grower...such as the growers who're satisfied with one or two varieties.  If you find yourself thinking about new varieties of jaboticaba several times a day, you have found the right place. 

Go ahead and contribute to the discussion, and you'll be an official member of J.A.  I ask that everyone please refrain from using real names, and defer to profile usernames...so we can remain anonymous.  ;D  ;)

here is a prayer to get our first meeting started:


        God, give me grace to accept with serenity
        the jabuticabeiras that I cannot cultivate,
        Courage to collect the jabuticabeiras
        which should be grown,
        and the Wisdom to distinguish
        one from the other.

Sign me up too!  Any time I see a variety available that I do not have I just have to obtain one.  And I am constantly finding myself drooling on the  photos of all the different jabo varieties in Lorenzo's book... if only I could get some seeds...

Can sign me up too lol. I love the fact that the fruit grows out of the trunk on a lot of Jabos. The tasty fruit is a big plus. I am waiting on adding more jabos. Only have 2 atm, I really want to try out the hybrid Red Jabo.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Great to see you guys here to get some help!  Your being honest and coming forward takes a lot of courage.

I have a few friends I'm worried about...

Jabomano might be the worst off!  He thinks about them even more than me...and I thought I could think anyone under the table, when it came to myrciaria madness.

Also, a nice new fellow I've met named Huertasurbanas has been associating with the jabo junkies..asking lots of questions about where they get their fix.  He's just getting into this whole mix, so the choice is still his to make.

Why is it always the dealers who set up these "recovery" programs?

Hello, i'm a jabocaholic. I used to be just mildly addicted, just eating some when i got home, so as to relax from a stressful day at work. But then i met Adam! I have to tell you that hanging around other jabocaholics, especially dealers, is not good for you! If you really want to get off the addiction you have to choose your friends more carefully. Birds of a feather stick together, and all that kind of stuff. The worst sinner is probably Harry Lorenzi because he published that devil's work, a sinful book with all those full frontal photos. We guys are so easily visually stimulated. That book should be prohibited reading. It should be banned.

I forgot to add that Adam is definitely the most sinful of the lot. He mixes up all those cocktail jabos that one just can't resist, as much as i do try!

I guess I shouldn't post here but I must admit I wish I was addicted to Jabo's, luckily or sadly I don't have a dealer close my me for I'm afraid that it would be very easy to get hooked!!!!

I'm slowly getting there. I've got Glenn and Timotayo mango and I'm looking at a Gold Nugget and Carrie mango tree soon. And I haven't even tried the fruits yet!!! :(

Hi Adam,

Save a chair for me. Perhaps you can help me with my latest addiction to my imaginary Myrciaria coronata?

Tomas,

I'm your sponsor...of course you have a chair.

So do you want coronata light, or the coronata extra, with lime? ;D ;D

I'll make sure to pick you up a corona!

They say the first step is admitting you have a problem...

It started so innocently enough.
