Today I’ll be showing you the process of growing Jabuticaba (Brazilian Tree Grape) from seed over a 5 month period. These cauliflorus trees grow a grape-like, purplish black fruit directly off the trunk of the tree which can be eaten raw or used in jams, juices or wine. These exotic and tropical trees are somewhat hardy, able to survive to about -6 degrees Celsius (21 Fahrenheit) and grow well in containers. This means it is possible to grow the fruit tree in colder areas. In the video I talk about how these plants create polyembryonic seeds where you get multiple plants for every seed you plant – pretty amazing! Other names: Plinia cauliflora , the Brazilian grapetree , jaboticaba or jabuticaba, it’s in the family Myrtaceae, native to Minas Gerais, Goiás and São Paulo states in Brazil.
