4 jabuticaba recommendation
« on: January 28, 2023, 12:04:23 AM »
Hi All
I want to add four more jabuticaba varieties to my collection. What would they be? I already have Scarlet, Otto, Cor.Restinga and Grimal.
Thanks

The Red is hard to beat
thin skin
fruits year round
fruits early
great taste
stays relatively small

This could help narrow it down for you https://jaboticaba.in/jaboticaba-list/

I agree with Mike, the red is a beast, so much fruit non-stop, nice looking tree also.

My personal favs are the PDM(blue velvet) and Spirito, they both put out super colorful leaves when they flush

Which Otto do you have?

Whats your goal in the 4 additional vars?

different flavors? different blooming times? will these be going in the GH as well?

Are you open to other Plinia/Myrciaria or just Jabos

I got an unnamed cultivar from pine island nursery that is about 9-10 years old. Itís fruiting/flowering for the first time right now. Does anybody know what variety pine island used to sell?

It is Otto Andersen branca vinho.
Spirito is Grimal right?  Does Blue velvet fruit look and taste like Vexator?

Green house? No, I will put them outside.
Especially looking for precocious ones with larger fruits. I am open to Plinia/Myrciaria too.

Plinia clausa and inflata have gigantic fruit and are supposedly delicious- Hapa Joe and Nate just did a review of the former but the latter might do better in your climate, especially if you want to put them outside
