Adam... looking to you for positive ID of this jabo... finally flowering for the first time, and I'm beyond excited.  I have at least 3 varieties of jabo in the ground (they are from different sources, have different growth patterns, and different leaf structure).  This was sold to me as a Red Hybrid and it's fruiting after 2 years in ground (was purchased from FL as a 3' tall plant)... currently about 5 1/2' tall. (Sorry for the sideways pictures... cant figure out how to turn these 90 degrees).













Since I haven't met a jabo fruit I didn't like, it doesn't matter to me what this one is called, just want to make sure I label it correctly.

Thanks Adam!  I obtained another "Red Hybrid" from the same source that looks very different (guessing that one may actually be Red Hybrid then), as well as two others that were labeled as "Grimal"s (but they are slightly different from each other) and a couple of seedlings I started from Red Hybrid fruit I collected in Brazil.  (plus a Cambuca that came from a generous member here).

I'll post photos when each finally fruits.

And yes, I know I have a problem, that's why I'm here. lol.

I grafted "Ponhema" onto Sabara and this one in a 2 gallon is boosting!



I grafted my mother tree last fall when I got the scion



Some were slow to push , as long as 2 months in some cases. Overall I had around 80% success on grafting onto Sabara with the few non takes being on plants that had micro nutrient issues, or small 1/4" rootstock .

Great job B2B! I hope to start doing some jabs grafting since my collection is growing. Did you grow "Ponhema" from seed or did you get a seedling/tree? Thanks. Chris

Scarlet (Escalarte) Jaboticaba right around three years putting out blooms on two different trees! Trees are in 15 gal. pots. Pretty excited to try these!

I have 5 years old jaboticaba sp. Escalarte (caulifora x aureana). Is it a red hybrid jaboticaba and Its only another name for it?  Thanks  :)

Escalarte is also called Scarlet Jaboticaba .Red Hybrid is a different hybrid but at 5 years old yours should be
flowering already

 They are certainly tough and will grow from cuttings just like these from a red hybrid

Plinia Phitrantha Var. Sapucaia. Beautiful new growth. Who else is growing this variety. Anyone with first hand experience tasting the fruit?

 Hi everyone I'm trying to identify this 3 year old seedling that was sold to a friend as coronata which it
 obviously isn't.One possibility might be phitrantha costada .Any help would be appreciated thanks

Definitely at least partially due to lack of Iron because I can see the veins are still a bit green with yellow in between the veins and it appears both young and older leaves are affected. You may need a bit of Magnesium as well. I would try a foliar with something like Southern Ag Citrus nutritional spray which you can pick up at Home Depot.

Your pot may be slightly too large for the plant so you are washing away a lot of the nutrients from the soil. It's better to gradually step up the pot but it's probably best to leave it in its current container because it's probably already somewhat filled the pot.

Figured I'd post a follow up. Almost 2 years later and the little jabo is looking much better. The Southern Ag Citrus treatment really work well. Greened up nice and growing slowly but surely. Thanks for the advice!

This is a tough one. I don't think it resembles phitrantha enough to go with. I could see a bit of veining in the first set of pics but the second set shows less. To me, the structure of growth and leaf texture/color, looks more closely related to "Grimal" Jaboticaba. I have a bunch of "Grimals" and they have that same growth pattern.

I am going to have the first harvest of my red jabo, which is about 6 years old. The first fruit is not very big, it turns from green to deep red in 4 days, it is still pretty hard. May I know how long it takes for the fruit to become ripe or how can I tell it is ripe?

It's ripe KennyT. The darker, the better. I like them when they get dark and lose their shininess. Congrats

I’m glad the tree greened up for you! You may also want to consider putting some soil Sulfur to bring down the pH of the soil/water. Jaboticabas also love Iron.

I bought a jabo with some bark damage at the trunk. Is there something I should do to prevent it from rotting in the future? Or is it fine to leave it like this? It has been growing nicely otherwise.

Maybe clear away the dirt around the wound.
How deep is the cut?
