Flowering Jaboticaba Bonsai Tree Medium (Eugenia Cauliflora)


The Jaboticaba, a native of southern Brazil and a relative of the Guava, is a unique member of the Myrtle family. Its botanical name, 'Cauliflora', signifies its distinctive feature of flowering and bearing fruit directly on the trunk and mature branches.

During its blooming season, the tree is adorned with clusters of small white flowers, which eventually transform into dark berries. These berries are a delicacy and can be found in select gourmet stores. The kernels of these fruits can be cultivated into bonsai, creating beautiful indoor trees.

One of the tree's intriguing characteristics is its bark, which peels off in curls as the trunk and branches expand. This medium-sized Jaboticaba Bonsai Tree, at 15 years old and standing 15-16" tall, is a great addition to any indoor space.

For optimal care, a suitable humidity/drip tray is recommended, available at a small additional cost.
