The Brazillian Grape, the tropical Jaboticaba Restinga Tree (Plinia cauliflora), also called Myrciaria cauliflora, produces enormous clouds of fluffy white blossoms that envelop the trunk with petals and later on, fruit! The clusters of dark purple fruit look like near-black, shiny bubbles, completely covering the trunks of this unusual tree!
Pollinators are drawn to the blossoms, and your house will have all the traffic slowing down as everyone else are also drawn in for a better look! Even when not in flower or fruit, the exfoliating bark will grab all the attention!
Ripening quickly, you’ll not wait long until harvest, you’ll have plenty to share with friends and family, or leave them for the birds and wildlife. With a sweet flavor similar to the grapes, the Jaboticabas have a refreshing zing. Eat fresh or juice them for preserves and even wine! The white flesh is melting and juicy, best eaten without the skins which are high in tannins.
Enjoy the shade these trees cast over your yard and driveway as a unique specimen and accent tree. Gorgeous leathery foliage, these tropical evergreen trees are multi-trunked specimen trees for hot growing zones or for porch and patio accents or even pruned small as houseplants if you have a sunny window.
Jaboticaba Restinga fruit trees are gorgeous year-round! Tinged new growth, foamy puffs of blooms, berry-like fruit that turns from green to nearly black, and intriguing bark? There’s little more you need to make for a perfect exotic tree for your property!
Jaboticaba Restinga Trees are highly adaptable and even tolerate clay as long as it is well-drained. Provide a full sun location that is fertile and has consistent moisture access. Loving heat and humidity, Jaboticaba trees do best in slightly alkaline and acidic conditions.
Unique fruit and beautiful ornamental appeal, the Jaboticaba Restinga Tree is a true exotic 4-season wonder! Order delicious tropical trees to elevate your yard and expand your food access and variety with trees from NatureHills.com today!
