Nice update on the Crown 1 Brandon, I know that Pine Island sold Crowns 1,2,3 several years ago, is there any information out in jaboticaba-land on the actual Coronata varieties these are?

Freeze dried red jaboticaba pulp....a top notch jaboticaba food product, my favorite way to prepare this fruit for sure...it taste like cotton candy, but healthy, and with some tartness to go along with all the sweetness.

absolutely loaded with candy jaboticaba flavor...check my ebay listings, they let me sell it now with FL's new cottage laws....

Noticed today that my Myrciaria glazioviana is flowering for the first time :D. Its in a half way filled 15gal pot, all shade, and about 2.5 ft tall. I got it from Adam 3-4 yrs ago. My Stringipes is also flowering. 1.5ft  foot tall in a 7gal pot full shade. So excited. :D.

Stringipes been flowering again. Can't believe it's over a year already. Looks like some flowers has set fruit. No care. Just shade and automated, daily, overhead watering.
The Earth laughs in flowers. And bear gifts through fruits.
No where to plant it ...but at least I got it. ;)
F*ck squirrels and deers

Can anyone here describe mature heights for circulated varieties when planted in the ground? Also, are any varieties bushier than others?
I have an okay collection so far, but to be honest I love bigger trees so I want to know if there's anything I'm missing haha

I know this is totally unimpressive, but for me it's a milestone, since I never had a Sabara that fruited before.  I've been growing the reds for about 8 years and harvested lots of fruit.

I bought this Sabara as an oversized plant in a 3g about 3 years ago and now is in a 25g.  Just harvested the first fruit.  It was fully colored, although after I picked it, I noticed a tiny wisp of green on one portion - should have waited another couple days.  Wasn't bad, but had a little astringency to it.  Still, it was a good feeling to finally get a taste and it fruited earlier than I expected!

How do the Crown 1,2, or 3 varieties compare to the Coronata Restinga?  I have a Restinga that I bought from Adam in 2015, probably in a 2g.  I just potted it up from a 25g into a 45g and the thing still hasn't fruited.  The metal tag on it has a date of 12-5-12 so I'm estimating it's about 10 years old from seed at this point.  It stands over 6ft high without the pot and has a trunk diameter of about 2.5 inches.

I've grown it in partial sun under a live oak, but I'm thinking maybe I should put it in more full sun and give it some bat guano, or???  It's a beautiful tree.  My son's favorite jabo in the collection because of the beautiful form and my wife won't let me get rid of it, God bless her. :)

According to another thread https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=18833.msg234891#msg234891 , Restinga is supposed to fruit sooner than other Coronatas, like 5-7 years, so this beauty has to fruit soon... pics before I potted it up into the 45g.

Hi , I am a hobby farmer from Singapore with an orchard across the Causeway in Johor, Malaysia.  Somebody offered me these few fruiting Jabos and called them "4 Season" (for want of the real name!). I have some Sabaras/Red Hybrid and am very interested to get hold of them but will appreciate if somebody can assist to identify them for me.

I ate my first Crown 1 fruit. The taste was similar to a concord grape. It was not overly sweet. The size was good, bigger than the reds I had on hand but not as big as some of the whopper reds and grimals I have harvested. The skin was thicker than a red, similar to a grimal. The skin did not have any objectionable flavors and seemed edible. In the taste test of both of the pictured fruits, I liked the flavor of the red better.

Crown 1 single seed, multi-segmented


I finally got two fruits from my Crown 1 tree.  I thought there's supposed to be a distinctive crown at the end of the fruit, but I don't really see it.  Does this look like the correct variety?  I still have the PIN tag on the tree.

The larger two fruits are Crown 1 and the smaller two for comparison are Sabara.

Was Crown 1 billed as a coronata?

Yes, it's supposed to be a Coronata.
