Bonsai in Brevard – June 2023

Jaboticaba Workshop – Time for the Unusual

This month’s meeting of our club on Saturday, June 17, 1:00 pm, will feature a workshop for an exotic tropical tree, the Jaboticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora) aka. Brazilian Grape Tree.

The Jaboticaba tree is a very unusual tree. The smooth flaking bark is not the only interesting feature. Flowers will appear on the trunk followed by a grape-like round, purple, edible fruit. This tree can be styled in several shapes. Most common styles are broom or informal upright.

We have 7 trees available for purchase from the club for you to work on at the meeting with the guidance of our club experts. You will need to take the tree home with you after the meeting. Don’t forget to bring your tools.

Cost of $45.00 is very reasonable for these fine Jaboticaba pre-bonsai specimens. Cash, Check, or Credit will be accepted.
