Jaboticaba 2016 Updates

This has to be one of the most interesting tropical fruit trees. The fruit bubbles out of the tree trunk like boils.



It tastes like a grape and is native to south america.

January 2017 - Winter Snow

So I'm truly amazed at how winter and cold hardy this tropical fruit plant is. Both my yellow and regular Jaboticabas are still thriving and have not lost any leaves from the deep frost and snow.  This is quite interesting. Once the trees get bigger they maybe a good candidate to grow outdoors with minimal winter protection here in Seattle.
