Plinia aureana "Costate" Jaboticaba Seeds
Regular price $2.50
This Plinia aureana is not necessarily a named cultivar but rather given the name "costate" to distinguish the shape of its fruit from other aureanas with smooth fruit. The cultivar is nearly indistinguishable from Plinia phitrantha "Phitrantha Branca" except that the bole is more erect and orderly. It has lanceolate leaves that can reach up to 18cm long. New growth emerges pubescent with a salmon color and hardens off to dark green with deep impressed primary and lateral veins. The fruit are subglobous, often have a small nipple at the connection with the peduncle, are deeply costate, and are light green colored even when ripe, and contain 1-3 large seeds. The flavor is excellent with a sweet jaboticaba flavor with a hint of honey.
