DELICIOUS!... DELICIOSA!...


I took this photo above in my orchard, in 11-29-2011. These three photos below were taken in 05-28-2005. A foto acima foi tirada no meu pomar em 29-11-2011. As três fotos abaixo são de 28-05-2005.




Have you ever tasted that fruit? Did you know its name? (The Brazilians certainly did!) Você já provou desta fruta? Sabe o seu nome? (Os brasileiros certamente sim!)

I LOVE looking at this tree!
What an amazing looking plant.
I remember when you first posted it - I had never seen it before and was instantly fascinated.
They sell them in Australia!

Is that it?

sonia a. mascaro said...

Yes, Letitia! You are right! The fruit is Jaboticaba and the tree is named in Portuguese, Jaboticabeira.
If I could I will send to you a big basket full of many jaboticabas.

Eu também adoro jaboticabas, Marcia!
Muito obrigada pela visita e pelos elogios ao meu blog.

Cara Sonia,
belas imagens! Não fazia a mínima ideia de como eram as jaboticabas! Infelizmente, nunca provei...

They look like plums... You should have seen the look on my face as I looked at the pictures... I can't believe there are so many fruits! Wow, Sonia!

altadenahiker said...

How have I never heard of this tree before? What a sight. Fruit growing right up the side of a tree. Describe the taste...

Vinni said...

Wow, You have brought back some sweet memories of my childhood, In India we call this fruit "Jamun" if the Jamun is sweet then u just cant stop eating it and whats interesting or funny is to see the color of our tongue after you have eaten it... Its Purple.... I hope its the same fruit in Brazil

Lindas jabuticabas...Lindas fotos!beijos,tudo de bom,chica

Thank you Letitia for the link to Jaboticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora and M.jaboticaba) Click HERE to see information about this delicious fruit.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Naomi and Karin, the jaboticaba fruits look like purple grapes and it has a very sweet, slightly aromatic, translucent pulp with a pleasant grape flavour. The whole fruit is consumed fresh. The fruits are often used for making jelly.
I did a jelly years ago, but I prefer to consume it fresh.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Vinni, I googled and see that the fruit Jamun, (Syzygium cumini) and (Syzygium jambolanum DC.) looks like a Jaboticaba but isn't the same fruit. Jamun is native to India and the Jaboticaba is native to Brazil, but both belong to the Myrtaceae Family. In Brazil Jamun is named as Jambolão (Syzygium cumini).
When we have eaten Jaboticaba, the color of our tongue don't stay purple.

Vinni said...

That's quite interesting, Thanks to you I got to know about a new fruit :)

Thérèse said...

Jaboticaba?
Strange to me but not to you apparently. What's the taste of it? I should google but won't, no time.

Pietro said...

Thanks for the description of this delicious fruit, Sonia, it's so interesting and the images are really wonderful!
Have a pleasant Monday!

Susan Campisi said...

Sonia, I have never seen such a fruit! I love it! These photos are amazing. I love how you zoomed in closer and closer. At first I thought, are those grapes? But I knew it couldn't be so. These trees are gorgeous.

Brenda said...

This is so fascinating!! It's funny that someone above said "you should have seen the look on my face..." - because it was the same for me. My mouth was literally hanging open! I have never seen such a thing in my life. My first thought was "Are those olives?" Because I've never seen how olives grow. Maybe they come out stuck to the trunk of the tree?? LOL!! This really is amazing, thanks for sharing.

Brenda said...

Oh, I had to come here right away. The name of the hummingbird in Portuguese is so beautiful and so perfect. I wanted to ask you, how do you pronounce it? Is the pronounciation of "Beija-flor" like "Be-ha flor? Kiss-flower... I love it! Thanks for sharing that delightful tidbit. :)

Melanie said...

Sonia..these fruits are beautiful. I have never seen nor eaten one. What are these beautiful little purple jewels??

georgia little pea said...

I don't remember the name but I HAVE tried them. There was a tree at the pousada in Chapada Guimaraes. They used the fruit to make jam too, for our breakfast. THEY WERE MMUITO DELICIOSA! :)!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Brenda asks me about the pronunciation of beija-flor in Portuguese. I googled and I found a link to pronunciation in many languages. Please, click HERE to hear the pronunciation of beija-flor in Portuguese.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Melanie asks me what is the little purple on the surface of one fruit on the first photo. Maybe a bird pecked the fruit and you can see a rose skin under of the black skin of the jaboticaba. But the pulp, the inner of the fruit is white. I hope I had success to explain it well...

Oi Sonia
Que coisa maravilhosa o pé de jaboticaba ! impressiona a beleza desse fruto coladinho ao caule .
Tinha no quintal da minha casa paterna e primeiro ficava branquinho de flores , depois pipocava todo em cor violeta escuro, um grande esptáculo!
Estou dando uma passadinha nos blogs e bloguei uma mensagenzinha de saudade .Viajo e só volto em fevereiro.
Feliz Natal e que 2012 chegue com saúde e muitas alegrias pra voce e os seus queridos.
Parabéns pelas lindas fotografias que nos oferece aqui no seu "gramado de folhas" rsrs
abraços amiga querida

Lara @ Uproad said...

I have never seen such a thing! do you also use them for jam or cakes?

Quiet Paths said...

Oh wow, such an abundance. It's beautiful. What is this? I don't recognize the fruit. YUM! Do you make juice out of these?

sonia a. mascaro said...

Hi Christine,
This fruit is Jaboticaba. You can know better following this link:
Jaboticaba tree. I prefer to eat them fresh, but year ago I did jelly, and it's very good too.

Luma Rosa said...

Jaboticaba pra mim é pura nostalgia infantil! Lembro de passar muito tempo pendurada na árvore e depois morrer de dor de barriga! (rs*) Atualmente tenho um pé criança de jaboticaba plantado em um vaso e a cada avanço, vibro muito!! Ver um pé de jaboticaba como o seu, é como olhar um pedacinho do paraíso!! Beijus,

guild-rez said...

Wishing you and your loved ones peace, health,
