I’m Jeb, the Jaboticaba tree or the Myciaria cauliflora. I am the most popular fruit-bearing tree native to Brazil. My bark is smooth, with a mottled creamy tan and reddish hue. My bark tends to peel off in curls as my trunk and branches expand. I am an evergreen but I shed half my leaves each spring before new growth begins. I'm known for my grape-like fruits that mysteriously grow on my trunk as a mature tree. These berries are used to make jams, juice, and wines. I like full to part-sun to feel and look my best. When I'm older, I'll produce a cluster of small yellow flowers, which eventually give rise to sweet grapelike fruits. Give me consistent water and temperatures above 50F.
To water, submerge my pot up to the rim for 20 minutes. Do this about once every 5 days or so, depending on how quickly my pot dries out. I never like to fully dry out. You can safely trim back my newer branches during the spring and summer months keep me in shape.
