Oscar, Zands, you guys are a treasure trove of info.
I'm back on good terms with my Muscadine Grapes, now that I'm gonna stop eating the skin.  ;D
Since now I know that jabos. are much larger that Muscadines, and bear in different seasons, I can't wait to try, try, try.
You guys have definitely turned me into a Jaboticabaholic Anonymous wanna be. Many thanks for your help.

Steven!

thanks for sharing all of these jabo videos!

I will have to watch them soon.

to answer your question....which is my favorite jabo...

I like the trunciflora for being so big, thin skinned, delicious, and rare (hard to find fruiting in FL)

but the red jaboticaba is an easy choice for a favorite....the tree is so small, fruits so much, and the fruits are versatile....u can have them early green sour, or late wine red, and very sweet.

but then again...the grimal makes a large uniquely delicious fruit, with thick (almost inedible) skin, but with small seeds, and lots of thick, nicely textured pulp.

I guess I'd say the red...but if I only had the red...Id want trunciflora or grimal!

this is a hard question!!!

Hi again,
You're most welcome, buddy :) Sit back and relax...you  and other fellow members are going to enjoy the vids very much(hopefully) :) I wish there was a huge plantation here, like in Brazil, were we can gorge ourselves with them jabs, must be fantastic experience to be amongst these huge trees 8)

 From the versatile red jab, to the large, thin-skinned rare jab and then to the large, thick-skinned delish textured Jab 8) All 3 species definitely sound trés yummy ;D Grimal with the thick skin, must pop nicely 8)

Thanks for sharing your favorite jab :)

here is some fruit for that monkey on your back...he needs to eat too, and his favorite food is jaboticaba
 
White, green, and Purple, (I love to see the 3 colors together), means the fruits almost never stop ripening. (approx, 30 days from flower to fruit)

I saw all the videos: super great!

I puted one of my 3 little jabos in full sun today (we are in the middle of a dry hot summer) just to compare its grow rate with the other ones that has only sun from 12 to 16hs (they are below a lemon tree). All of them are sprouting new leaves.

Do you think it would be better to give them sun from the morning and not from the noon?

The Myrciaria vexator (blue jaboticabas) are starting to ripen...the flowered approx 9-23-12...so it's taking about 5 months for them to ripen!  They take for ever!!!  and they stay fresh on the tree for a long time...unlike many other species I grow...these take a while to show up, but stick around for a while...The tree is almost everbearing...producing fruits from about April-Jan

Almost everbearing, that's impressive. For someone who's looking for just one (1) jaboticaba grafted cultivar, how would you describe the taste (common, average, good, excellent?) and the fruit size (small, average, large, very large?).

taste to me like jaboticaba / rollinia...very nice, and unique...not like typical jaboticaba.

fruits are large, thick skinned with large seed.

if u don't fertilize them and forget water the hell out of them, the fruits will be small, with scant pulp, and large seeds.

the skin is so thick and tannic, it isn't wise to go chomping through it (like typical jabos) it will have a suriname cherry tasting resin, that some dislike....I have come to enjoy the taste of the oils in the skin...but those who wish to avoid it, can simply precut the fruits in half before eating, and suck out the pulp, without getting much of the tannic oils in the skin.

Howdy Oscar,
 :) Sure, I can do that :) There isn't alot of English vids on Jabuticaba...there is more Brazilian Portuguese videos..I will try to find more English one ;) De nada, Amigo :)


Hi Adam,
Your blue Vex, with fruit, looks great 8) I got to say, they are my favorite jab, love the tree's shape, leaves...everything ;D 8) I don't know why they aren't as popular as them jabs :-\
Thanks for sharing :)

Jackfruitwhisperer,

thanks!!!

i think they're not as popular because of the thick tannic skin, high water requirement...and slight cold sensitivity. 

They can be killed in the cold, where Sabara will laugh!

the good thing about vexator is, they bear early from seed about 5yrs, and they can be kept relatively small (less than 10ft)

They are a must have in my opinion...a very ornamental, unique flavored jaboticaba...that has a very long fruiting season!  It's much more resistant to pests like fruit flies and birds...due to it's thick skin.

Also the fruit hangs on the tree forever!  Once they ripen you don't have to pick them all at once (like most jabos)....this adds to the longevity of the fruiting season!

Adam,
I love a fruit with a kick ;D From what i see on the net...people prefer to cultivate this tree as an ornamental tree, than for fruit...maybe, they aren't aware they are edible :-\

5 years is not very long time to wait for them fruit, and they are great tree for growing in them pots...like you do 'em buddy 8) I can't freak'n wait for them to produce ;D

Thanks a bunch for sharing more info about the tree...I luv to learn all the facts about them trees :) The net lacks info on this tree :o

Vexators (blue grape) is almost completely unknown here, and we got no cold and plenty of rain.

Oscar!

I can't believe they aren't fruiting all over in Hawaii !!

It will love your climate!  I believe it's tolerant somewhat to coastal locations...and it's very resistant to rust...and high temps....probably resistant to wind as well...more so than most jaboticabas.
