I’m obsessed with the idea of growing jaboticaba in Florida.
Take a look at this jaboticaba tree growing in Boca Raton:
I was in Boca Raton a few weeks ago with my friend JJ and got to see this mature jabuticaba in the backyard of his friend’s house.
Not only did I get to see it… I got to try the fruit. Amazing. Like grape cotton candy.
See how the flowers bloom right out of the trunk? This one was starting a new bloom cycle but still held a few fruits from its previous fruiting. That’s not surprising, considering they will bear fruit 5-6 times a year.
When I see a tree like this… I’m blown away by God’s creativity. Phenomenal work, Creator. I’m totally impressed.
If you live south of Orlando or so, you need to grow this tree. I have little one in a pot I’m hoping will do okay… but in the ground would be better.
Please… go get one if you live someplace warm. Tell me about it. Let me live vicariously through your experience.
