Plinia aureana "Smooth" Jaboticaba Seeds
Regular price $3.00
This Plinia aureana is not necessarily a named cultivar but rather given the name "smooth" to distinguish the smooth shape of its fruit from other aureanas with costate fruit. It has lanceolate leaves that can reach up to 12cm 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, 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. Fruits at 5-7 years old. Brix ranged from 12-19 from a sample of ripe fruit.
