When i lived in Brazil, we ate this fruit like crazy!! It's wonderful!! I live in SW Orlando and I would love to find & buy one of these trees. Any suggestions where I can find a Jaboticaba tree?

If you want good sized specimens, http://www.realtreehousenursery.com . Don't be fooled, these tree's wont fruit until they are 7-10 years old. Cheers
