Comment from reader Ana:
As a native Brazilian living in the US, it is a pleasure to see the picture of your jabuticaba tree. It was always one of my favorite fruits and I haven't had a taste of one in years. It sure brings back memories. I know that jabuticaba likes the company of other jabuticaba trees. It helps with cross pollination. You will yield a lot more fruit if you add a couple more trees nearby.
Good luck and thank you for sharing it.
Ana, thanks for the comment. I took this picture a few days ago. The jabuticaba tree continues to grow and it's producing fruit now. I'm sure it would be producing much more, if we had more rain. It's seldom that I get a chance to taste the fruit because of the birds, especially the tanagers. They get served first. I do have another tree to provide that company you suggest, but it's still in a vase. I'll get it into the ground as soon as we get rain.
