Product Details

Sabara Jaboticaba Bonsai Tree, Brazilian Grape Tree (Plinia cauliflora)- Live Plant

Ships in a 4 inch Pot

This bonsai is in a beautiful ceramic pot! A great addition to any patio or for indoor! (color of ceramic pot varies)

Jaboticaba is a tropical to subtropical evergreen tree or large shrub that bears edible, thick-skinned, grape-like purple fruits with a sweet, juicy, gelatinous, white pulp. This red variety fruits between 3-4 years. It is a very slow growing tree but is widely adaptable, doing great in containers large enough for the growing root system, so long as they are tended and irrigated. Its flowers are white and grow directly from its trunk in a califlorous habit. Naturally the tree may flower and fruit only once or twice a year, but when continuously irrigated it flowers frequently, and fresh fruit can be available year round in tropical regions. The fruit is borne directly on the main trunks and branches of the plant, lending a distinctive appearance to the fruiting tree.

Fresh fruit may begin to ferment 3 to 4 days after harvest, so they are often used to make jams, tarts, strong wines, and liqueurs. Trees will tolerate minimums of 27 to 29°F (-2 to 3°C) for 2 or 3 hours if they are in good condition. However,young trees may be severely injured at those temperatures; therefore, it is important that it is protected below 30 degrees. We suggest keeping your tree in a container that can be relocated into a greenhouse or indoors during freezing weather conditions.

  • Average mature height:
  • Light: Full to partial sun
  • Soil: moist, lightly acidic soils for best growth.

*Shipping Plants: 
-Stress- Shipping can cause stress to a plant, mostly because it spends a few days in a dark stuffy box. Most of plants survive with no problems or with a minimal stress (some leaf drop may occur), and recover quickly others may require extra love and attention with watering and gentle light after unboxing.
-Physical damage- Sometimes a carrier may damage boxes during handling.
It does not happen often as we try to pack your plants with extra special attention but unfortunately there are some things beyond our control.  In cases of serious damage, only the carrier can be responsible for it- so please contact the carrier within 30 days to start a claim. If it's just a broken branch or even part of a stem - just let it grow, take care of your plant and it will respond to your love. We understand your frustration if damage occurs, and strive to do everything we can on our end to minimize all damage and stress on the plant
