successfully fruit 3yr old jaboticaba in NY!
Not the classic jaboticaba but in the family. These are supposed to take several years to fruit under ideal conditions. Incredibly (at least to me anyway), this has produced 4 small fruit after only 3 years or so- and in NY to boot. The fruit were on the small size - about cherry tomato size and the skin was a tiny bit on the thick side. Nice spicy flavor. Not excellent but good and i prob picked the first 2 too early in my excitement. They went from green and nut sized to purple and cherry sized in about 5 days. this is a pic of one of the 2 that are not yet ready yet. will try and leave these babes on the tree longer. hoping for more fruit soon!
