Plinia cauliflora

Jaboticaba Paulista – a captivating tree known for its large, thick-skinned fruits! This ornamental variety stands out with salmon-pink new leaves that mature into lush green. Slow-growing and evergreen, it thrives in moist, slightly acidic soil. The tree boasts unique white flowers directly on the trunk and can flower and fruit multiple times annually. Its compact roots make it suitable for pots. The 3–4 cm diameter fruit resembles a slip-skin grape, with sweet, gelatinous flesh and purple skin housing 1 to 4 seeds.

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.

My Paulista variety arrived, it looks amazing. Tall about 50cm and healthy, valued money. Their leaves are more curly, longer, bigger, more pointy than Sabara. This it slow growing variety but waiting worthy

Great looking trees!

I bought this and a Sabara Jaboticaba. They were packaged well and arrived in great condition. Both trees look very healthy and bigger and better than in the pictures.
