October Jaboticaba Update. Grimals fruiting and first sabara flowers.

"Thanks Christa, would I be able to come and get a handful of the sabaras when fruiting? I would love to get some sabara rootstock in case I visit some stfc members who have rare jaboticabas that I accidentally break a scion off."

"Well done Doug, good to see you ventured into grafting successfully. You have quite a few jabo types now. They should give you heaps of fruit in a couple of years. Looks like you have heaps of stock for grafting different scions onto. That small…"
