Gardening Questions And Answers
cauliflora fruits are an especially good source of minerals such as calcium, iron, and especially potassium and phosphorus, containing up to 34.6 and 13.2 mg in 100 g fresh fruits, respectively (Lorenzi et al., 2000). Jaboticaba also contains significant levels of certain amino acids like tryptophan and lysine.
As mentioned, the jaboticaba fruit tree bears its fruit along old growth branches and trunks rather than along new growth as in most other fruit trees. The tree flowers intermittently throughout the year and is an evergreen, often used as a specimen tree, edible fruit tree, shrub, hedge or even as a bonsai.
