My First Jaboticaba Fruit
« on: November 20, 2022, 11:24:13 AM »
I bought a baby seedling red hybrid in 2018 or 2019 from 9waters on Etsy or EBay. Almost killed it the next year when I put it in the ground in soil that was not suited and way too much sun. After 6 months of dieback, I pulled it out of the ground and put it in a pot in the shade. After a few months, it finally started pushing new growth and has been growing great since then. It up to a 15 gal container and has a ~1Ē diameter trunk. Iíve been patiently waiting for it to fruit. Lo and behold, I found a small fruit today a couple feet up on the tree on a smaller part of the trunk. Canít wait to see if it makes it to maturity to taste it!

Congrats! Always exciting when a jabo first fruits. I still have not had a jabo fruit from seed or seedling. I did just buy a big cocktail jabo and the red graft is fruiting so at least I can finally join the excitement of having a fruiting jabo!

Nice, some time ago I made a post in the jaboticaholics thread with the first flower of mine that is very similar in size to yours and now 8 months later it has a lot of fruits and flowers, I think that a lot of rainwater helps it bloom, I put the pot on another one that contains water and I leave it drinking for a couple of hours at least once a week.

Congrats! You shouldn't have too long to wait. Mine started flowering on Oct 28 and I harvested the first ripe fruit yesterday Nov 20.

I fertilized as soon as it started to flower and then we had another hurricane, and it's blooming like crazy now. Wasn't expecting the flowers to smell so nice, they perfume the air.
