Farwell Fruit Farm
Plinia coronata "Restinga Jaboticaba" Seeds
Regular price $3.50
Fruits at 7-8 years old, mature trees are likely freeze tolerant to the mid 20's. Of the 70+ varieties of jaboticaba that I have tasted, Restinga is one of the most unique. The flavor profile is that of Sabara jaboticaba but with an aftertaste that hints at a floral bubblegum or even root beer if picked very ripe. Taking down a freshly-picked bowl of these is an absolute pleasure and a fun change from the other more common jaboticabas which taste more similar to each other. The pronounced crown at the sepal is stunning and varies dramatically in size - a real feather in mother nature's crown. 60%+ pulp by weight, bears a few times per year after 2-5 years of fruiting if kept irrigated and fertilized. Germination rates of 80%+ will continue well past 3 months from harvest. Needs daily watering and pH <7.5 either by water, soil, or amendments. Perfect for container culture.
