My Jaboticaba collection
« on: July 23, 2012, 10:06:39 AM »



Well, not really a collection, just the one that I've had over 25 years.  The pole is 8 ft, the dog is a mini Australian shepherd.  Tree is hardy to freezes, produces well, large sized fruit. (I use to post over on GW as SLOJACK and posted some photos there one time.)  Don't know where I got it so many years ago, but hung around with the likes of Paul Thompson and other early pioneers of CRFG and shared many plants and seeds.

My question to the Jabo experts is in regard to pruning...There are many dead twigs throughout the tree, tree could use pruning.  So how is the tree pruned for favorable fruiting, continued growth?  Dead twigs, no problem, it is already well shaped.  There are multiple trunks coming from the ground. I did girdle to induce fruiting (tried pulling branches to horizontal-didn't work).  Did get fruits on girdled branches first, then all over the tree.  Girdled branches have recovered.

Just a guess, but since his old site name used to be SLOJACK, i'm assuming he lives near San Luis Obispo.

Saw the tree a month or so ago, very beautiful tree. Good to see you posting more often here Jack.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

OK, I think I updated my profile to indicate San Luis Obispo County, CA.  Small town of Nipomo on the Central Coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles, today's high will be 70 degrees, nights low 50s, typical summer morning and evening fog..  NOW I'm ready for tech support!
