Plinia sp. Branca Melancia (aka Branca Rajada, Watermelon) Jaboticaba Seeds
Commentary from Farwell Fruit Farm: This cultivar is one of the most beautiful jaboticaba trees with its stunning symmetrical foilage. New growth is pink and pubescent and hardens off to a green more glabrous leaf. While it may be tempting to call this a Plinia aureana, the darker color stripes and larger fruit size hint that this cultivar is unique. The fruit is also among the most visually appealing of the jaboticabas.
