Jaboticaba thriving despite neglect

We've already picked heaps and still lots left. I read it freezes well and makes good jam/jelly or juice. Its in an area that does not get a lot of love, yet survived the dry summer! The raised vegie gardens (modified hugelkulture) are going well - 6 weeks and so far harvesting radish/beans/lettuce and spinach leaves, plus found some bonus seedlings compliments of the compost - watermelon, capsicum, mango/paw paw and lychee. This week we also picked a few dragon fruit, passionfruit, hand of bananas, citrus and guavas. Wasn't the recent rain wonderful! All is forgiven mother nature, I love this time of year.

Hi Susan I think I have planted one of those plants at Blackbutt but it is a long way off getting fruit I feel. Have you tried growing this from seeds, I see you have struck Lychees from the compost that is great I have struck Longans from seeds and am trying a few others. Would it be possible  to pick up from you a few seeds from the Jaboticaba at Elaine' s meet on the 1st? Cheers Christine.
