If you are looking for a beautiful tree with delicious fruit to bring a wow factor to your garden then look no further than the Jaboticaba. The Jaboticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora) is a slow growing tree native to Brazil and surrounding countries. Jaboticabas are a striking ornamental tree with fine leaves, attractive bark and honey scented flowers. However, their most exciting feature is the grape-like fruit which grow directly on the trunk. This unique feature makes it an attractive and unusual feature in any garden.

The fruit has a purple skin and a translucent flesh similar to a grape and are great eaten fresh from the tree, or can be used in jams and wine. Once established they will fruit prolifically, often up to three times a year!

Jaboticabas will grow best in a well drained, nutrient rich soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5 and like a warm sunny position with protection from frosts when young.
