Red jaboticaba producing first fruits!
« on: May 29, 2013, 10:50:12 PM »
It is approximately 3 years old and producing its first fruits.  I am impressed by its early fruiting.  Tree is about 2 feet tall.

Brad,

here is the pic you sent me!

Luc,

Yes...the fruit so nice they named it thrice...Vermelha (red), Precoce (precocious), Hibrida (Hybrid).  Below is a link to a website with info about this jabuticabeira.

Hey Brad,
If you have seeds from your red Jabo, I would love some seeds if they aren't already spoken for? Or anyone else for that matter that might have some extras.

Thanks

Yup, that's the one. Originally the red was thought to be a different plant. If you look at Lorenzi's book you will see they have a different entry and photo for it, although it does state it is "very similar" to the hybrid. But on more questioning of Marco it seems they are the same, or just a different color version of the same thing.

Thao, Oscar has seeds for sale on fruitlovers.com

In that photo is that the main truck of the tree? If so that's fairly thin! I guess I am stuck in old jabo world and comparing it to sabara fruiting trees lol.  What's cool is that the reds I have should fruit soon based on your photo, red might be my new favorite jabo!

That is on the main trunk, about halfway up the tree, after a couple of bifurcations.

Picture taken this morning.  Just about ready to pick!  Notice the little fruit just underneath the mature ones.

Planted it in the ground 3 weeks ago.  Up until then it was in a 3 gallon pot in full sun and being watered every other day roughly.   Fertilized maybe twice in past year.

Wow very interesting species of jabo.  I bet you will see this variety in the future as main jabo variety to get since it will fruit so quickly.

I tried Jaboticaba for the first time at Truly Tropical a couple of weeks ago. I threw the seeds in a ziplock bag and checked them today and they had little roots popping out so I planted the germinated seeds in potting soil. I can't wait!! I really like it. I will have to ask Chris or Har if they know what the variety is. The skin was a deep dark purple color. Do they grow fairly true to type?

I'd like some seeds too. I know Oscar sells them but the $30 overnight shipping is whats holding me back, for a fruit I've never tasted before.

I thought you can get cheaper shipping?  Only about $6 for USPS priority.

Tasted the five fruit from the tree.  Nice sweet gelatinous flesh much like sabarah, and perhaps a bit milder flavored than sabarah.   No tartness at all. I enjoyed them.  The largest fruit was more enjoyable as tree was more flesh inside to enjoy.  The skin was thinner than sabarah but still had obvious tannins which left a brief aftertaste.  I wouldn't regularly eat the skins based on the tannin taste. 

Looking forward to the next "crop".
