The Jaboticaba is a tropical evergreen tree native to South Brazil. Its fruit is edible fresh off the tree. Just pinch each fruit between your thumb and forefinger to squeeze out the flavorful pulp without eating the skin, which is edible but high in tannin. Fruits are sometimes made into marmalades, jellies and wine.
This plant grows best in full sun to part shade and in a rich, moist, well-drained soil. You can expect it to produce fruits after 2-3 years; fruits 1-2 times a year.
