I bought a multigrafted jabo and am wondering what variety the rootstock is. When compared to my sabara leaves they are bigger and growth rate looks different.

You will have to upload pictures, but usually Sabra rootstock is what is used. There can be some variation between many of these varieties leaves. But some pictures would help.

Fueling my Jabo fever ....
bought a ESALQ and a Coronata Restinga from FFF on Ebay last week. I am so thrilled with the health and vigor of these seedlings !

Big surprise is the extra  I received that is not labeled.  Can anybody help me ID this sweet youngster?

Thanks all,  P J

OH BOY
a pitangatuba !!!!!   thanks soooo very much Adam, I sure like its pretty leaves.

The next rare and wonderful fruit I need is a grewia asiatica, so if anyone has seeds or a seedling my paypal is warmed up and ready to go .... after all, one cannot survive on Jaboticaba alone

Happy Gardening

3 years for my scarlets and not much longer for my reds. My climate seems to suit them and they produce multiple big crops a year and the fruit can be larger than in the vid.

Found this reference site called "The Plant List".  It has all the Plinia species and synonyms.  If this has already been posted, my apology:

Hello everyone and thanks in advance. My Sabara needs help but I searched everywhere but found no information related to what I have. I planted this sabara two years ago in-ground inside my sunroom and before that it was planted inside my greenhouse for 4 years.While inside my sunroom I used to water it twice a week but three months ago I used the moisture meter and found that the soil is always at 10, which is the highest moist indicated of the meter. So I stopped water the tree three months ago, lots of leaves dried up and dropped, but the same amount as I was watering it twice a week. However it does keep on pushing new leaves and the barks shed a lot more now. The sunroom has lots of windows and 4 skylines and south facing so there are lots of lights.I am in zone 7a Springfield,VA so I can not plat it outside.

My question is should I stop watering since the soil is always moist and should I expect any fruit and when, I got the tree as a 3gl and planted 4 years in the greenhouse and transplanted to the sunroom for another two years.

How did you plant it in the sunroom? Yours should fruit in 1-3 years depending on conditions. As for water, they can tolerate flooding, but don't know how good it is for long periods of time. if it sheds bark and there are new leaves coming, then it is a healthy tree. As for the leaves drying out, it could be beacuse of humidty? just a guess.

lack of humidity must be the issue.

i think a red, escarlate, or anomaly would be better suited for that situation than sabara, the sabara is just too big and slow to come to fruition...

Only tried jaboticabas once, on a vacation to Florida. Delicious. Would like to try growing them someday if my climate permits...

First fruiting of Coronata, 7-8 year old
« Reply #1419 on: October 10, 2020, 04:23:49 PM »
First fruiting of a Coronata I got when I visited Adam 7 years ago. I got it as a 1 gallon and it is now in a 15 gallon. Adam said it would take 12 years plus to fruit. My friend showed me the fruit today even though I see the plant everyday. What a surprise. Does anyone know specifics about this variety?

I bought a multigrafted jabo and am wondering what variety the rootstock is. When compared to my sabara leaves they are bigger and growth rate looks different.

Hi, everyone, I am new to the Forum and would like to introduce myself, a Singaporean, as having been establishing my hobby tropical farm at Johor Bahru, Malaysia in the past 3-4 years. I collected my first Sabara seedlings from Exotica (Vista, CA) whilst on a visit to my son at San Diego. Lately, I noticed that a garden friend, who has possibly the largest Jabo population (about 50 Sabara trees) in Singapore/JB, had been harvesting fruits every few months, and am not very motivated to expand my initial collection of also, only Sabara specie. I had been reading up on the subject in the past few weeks and would like to thank Forum contributors for pointing out unselfishly the possibilities and techniques. I had attempted to reach out to a few of you privately but I believe, since I am a stranger, I had not received any response from anybody. Consequently, I ordered some seeds Red Hybrid seeds from Tradewinds about a month ago. They arrived within a few days and almost half have sprouted to-date. I hope that, by this introduction, I can be known to all of you and look forward to participating and exchanging notes with you. Kind regards.

I've been reading the thread haven't quite found the answer for the questions that I have. I'm sure it's in there somewhere but there's a lot there so I'm just going to ask.

Is there any difference in cold tolerance with the different varieties.

Is there a variety that is more precocious than the others

Is there a subtle miniscule difference in flavors or is there one that you prefer.

Thank you for your answer in advance. I will go back to reading the thread. I have six more years to read to get up to speed

Excluding Adam Shafran's expensive and hard to find Anomaly variety, red and escarlate (scarlet) jaboticabas are the earliest to fruit. They can fruit in as little as three years according to what I have read about them. Blue grape jaboticaba (Myrciaria vexator) is one that I have read conflicting reports about. I have read in some sources that it is more precocious than Sabara, other people say it takes a while to fruit.

I agree... my Red took 3 years from seed and this year is its 3rd fruiting year... it has bloomed and set fruit pretty much non-stop.
Very sweet fruit and tart edible skins!
