Thanks, I thought it was cauliflora.

Does m. cauliflora takes more time or less time to fruit than m. jaboticaba sabara?

nope, it's not cauliflora...it's the most common form in the world M jaboticaba, var. sabara

they both take about the same amount of time to fruit.

Fine, I didnt found exact information on internet about all the differences between m. jaboticaba and m. cauliflora (so, sorry if I had to ask you):

is the taste just the same? does they bear the same amount of fruit per year? etc

I wish I had more experience tasting all of the varieties of myrciaria...to be honest I've never even tasted the fruit of a true M. cauliflora....the most common form I've seen in USA  is Paulista (it makes large fruits).

I hear the fruits are just like M. jaboticaba ...but generally have a slightly more acid taste (still can be sweet)....and M. jaboticaba is well know for always being sweet...not much acidity.

I believe they are similar in their bearing habits.

also there are many forms of M. cauliflora..I think more so than M. jaboticaba...and the variations of fruit in M. cauliflora can be drastic...with different sizes, flavors, and thicknesses of skin.

Thanks Adam, look what I found about Paulista:

"In a previous work (not published) we performed several tests, including shelf life test, in 5 cultivars of jaboticaba. There were differences in terms of weight loss and the consequent shelf life. The extremes were cv. Rajada that had higher dehydration, brightness loss and attack of pathogens and cv. Paulista that was one of the species with less weight loss."
