An interesting feature of Myrciaria caulifera (Jaboticaba) is how the fruit forms directly on the trunk and branches of the tree.
- This week I have something very interesting for your South Florida garden. The jaboticaba is not just delicious, it’s a very attractive addition to your garden. It’s also a great conversation piece because the fruit forms and ripens directly on the bark of the tree. The fruit is deliciously sweet. From now through Sunday Jan 27, you can buy your own jaboticaba tree, or get them for your friends for only $20 for a three gallon container. Remember to mention “Richard’s Deal.”
