The Jaboticaba Large Leaf is an evergreen tree that is commonly grown in tropical and subtropical climates, originally from Brazil. It is grown for its unique and sweet black fruit, which covers the inside trunks of the tree. The tree produces several crops of fruit each year, with flowering to fruit maturity taking only about a month. Although the fruit is larger than the small leaf selection, the skin is slightly tougher.

The tree can grow up to 5 meters in height when planted in good conditions. It is self-pollinating, so only one plant is required to bear fruit. The Jaboticaba Large Leaf prefers temperatures above 5 degrees Celsius but can handle some frosts. The tree retains all its leaves during winter, making it an evergreen.
It is also suitable for growing in pots, as long as the pot is at least 35L in size. The tree requires moderate watering and prefers good drainage soil. It prefers full sun.
Jaboticaba plants care tips

Climate: Jaboticaba is a tropical tree that prefers warm, humid conditions. It can tolerate temperatures as low as 25°F (-4°C) for short periods, but prolonged exposure to cold temperatures can damage or kill the tree.

Soil: The tree prefers well-draining, acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.5. Adding organic matter, such as compost or peat moss, can help improve soil quality.

Water: Jaboticaba 'Paulista' needs regular watering, especially during its growing season. Keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged.

Sunlight: The tree prefers full sun to partial shade, but it can tolerate some shade.

Fertilizer: Fertilize the tree regularly with a balanced fertilizer during its growing season. Avoid fertilizing the tree during the winter months.

Pruning: Prune the tree regularly to promote healthy growth and fruit production. Remove any dead, diseased, or damaged branches, and shape the tree as desired.

Pest and disease control: Watch for pests such as scales, mealybugs, and spider mites, which can damage the tree and reduce fruit production. Treat any pest problems promptly with an appropriate pesticide or insecticide. Keep an eye out for fungal diseases such as anthracnose, which can cause leaf spots and fruit rot. Treat any disease problems with a fungicide.
