Jabuticaba, also known as Jaboticaba or Brazillian Grapetree, is a really unique small fruit tree or shrub native to Brazil. Jabuticaba fruit grows right off of the trunk and is about the look and size of a large grape, measuring 1-3 inches in size. The fruit has astringent grape-like skin and white sweet rosey flavored pulp. Jabuticaba fruit is typically eaten fresh but can also be used to make juices, desserts, jams, or even fermented into wine. 

The name Jaboticaba (Plinia cauliflora) ccoes from the Tupi word, jaboti, for turtle, or like turtle fat, descriptive of the fruit pulp. Cauliflora is from cauliflorous, meaning the fruit and flowers grow directly on the bark or under bark along the trunk, limbs, and branches. The branch is profuse; angling upward and typically forms a dense, rounded or vase-like, symmetrical crown.

    Love it but….

    I was so excited to find this plant and the shopping was very fast!! Unfortunately there was nothing in the box except the plant which was way way smaller than I thought it would be. Care directions would have been nice or even a label stuck to the box or container reminding me of this wonderful plants name. Also no receipt either. Maybe they just didn’t like me lol. You get a very small plant in a box that looks like it was just poked into a hole in the dirt and that’s it. Wish me luck with my plant. (No I go at all ). Ps I ordered the bigger one. Glad o didn’t order the small one I might still be trying to find it in the box haha. Good point tiny plant hot here in good condition

    Great service, Lovely Plants, quick Delivery

    I am very pleased with the service I received and the quality of the plants which were sent.. They were delivered quickly and were well packed. And with the tracking information, I knew when to expect their arrival and potted them up as soon as they arrived. I couldn't be happier with my new Jaboticaba trees! Normally I prefer to choose my plants in person, but based on this experience, I would certainly trust the folks at Sow Exotic to select and send good quality plants. Thank you, So Exotic!
