Jaboticaba is Myciaria cauliflora,

i wouldnt call it "Brazillian grape" as that may be confused with "amazon tree grape" Pourouma cecropiaefolia or "Blue grape" Myrciaria vexator

i have a two year old specimen which hasnt fruited yet, there are a few members here with them, some that fruited

I'll have seeds come April next year. But, growing a jaboticaba from seed is a long haul. If you're lucky, you'll get fruit in 6 years; but, it could take even longer. It's worthwhile to consider purchasing a 3 to 7 gallon tree to shorten the wait.

Jeff,

Good to hear from you. Just wanted to let you know that the ilama seeds are doing great. I have about a half dozen that have germinated and are about 5" to 6" inches and growing.

Thanks again for pointing out that I had the wrong plant and for sending me the seeds.

Jacob, I'm so glad to hear it! That's fantastic! Keep them protected if it gets too cold. I lost a couple of small ones last year when we had those freezing temps here in south fl.

I would highly recommend growing a Jaboticaba. The plant is very handsome, and takes to container growing well. New foliage is a reddish color, and the bark peels off like a birch. The fruit grows directly on the trunk, which is something I am dying to see. The flowers are supposed to be aromatic, as well as looking pretty cool.

Hi everyone I want to thank you all for your input, I have read few things about this tree, but cannot decide if its the right itme to purchase this tree, or should I wait for Februay- spring time to buy and plant. However I think I am a little closer to find one in Houston or near by. Marcie

The best time to buy a tree is 4 years ago.
