GENERAL INFORMATION

  • A popular fruit bearer in its native Brazil, Jaboticaba’s name is derived from the Tupi term “jabotim,” which means “like turtle fat” in reference to its fruit pulp.
  • It is a slow-growing tree or shrub that reaches heights of between 10 and 45 feet.
  • They are frost intolerant and sensitive to salinity. Jaboticaba fruit trees are related to the Surinam Cherry, Java Plum, and Guava.
  • They are very interesting trees in that they bear fruit on old-growth trunks and branches, making the tree look much like it’s covered with purple cysts.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It is best in rich deep soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5.
  • Although it is not well adapted to alkaline soils, it may be grown successfully by mulching and applying necessary nutrient sprays containing iron.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • For young plants, half ratio fertilizer at monthly intervals will speed the plant's very slow growth rate.
  • Any well-balanced fertilizer applied three times per year will keep the plant healthy.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Jaboticaba trees are will take full sun or some shade and are small enough to fit into many parts of the garden landscape.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water should be supplied as needed to maintain good soil moisture and prevent wilting, but constant flooding is undesirable.
  • As the root system is somewhat shallow, irrigation is usually required when the upper inch or two of soil becomes dry.
