Elsewhere, in another place … not a botanical garden, I was allowed to taste the fruits, kind-a sweet, not too distinctive… but blue/black color makes me think that there might be Phyto nutrients in the pulp and the skin… if it can be grown ORGANICALLY…
Not to confuse between Myricaria (Tamaricaceae) a genus of small shrubs uploaded by .. today and Myrciaria (Myrtaceae) a genus of trees uploaded by … in this thread.
((OLD TYPING Dear All including my photos of the Jaboticaba, Brazilian tree grape Myricaria cauliflora Family : Myrtaceae ))
Correct name spelling is MYRCIARIA cauliflora.
The JABUTICABA tree: sharing a forward I have received. I have not done any research to verify this. Strange forwards do come our way. It will be great to know from experts whether this is real.
No, this is not a belated April Fool?s prank. They look as if they may have been pinned there by an overenthusiastic gardener to impress the neighbors, but the fruit of the Jabuticaba really does grow off the trunk of the tree.
Well i GOOGLED it and the information seems to be true. Its known as Myrciaria cauliflora (Mart.) O.Berg
very interesting … i think this belong to the family moraceae same as ficus infectoria or ficus glomerata
Thanks a lot for sharing the pics and information. A nice piece of research it seems. Myrciaria cauliflora as the name suggests cauliflora means “flowering on the stem”.
Appears to belong to the Flacourtia genus. May be Flacourtia jangomas
YES THIS IS JABOTICABA… a cauliflori tree from Brazil… called Myriciaria cauliflora
MANY trees set flowers and fruits on its trunk directly…. some that come to mind right here are:
