Some Jaboticaba Trees can take 5 years or more to bloom and produce fruit, but not the Sabra Jaboticaba, which can make fruit in a year or two. The fast fruiting but slow growing features of the Jaboticaba Sabra Tree make it a perfect specimen for a tropical fruiting bonsai. This Jaboticaba Sabra Bonsai displays the characteristic Jaboticaba peeling bark, green and bronze leaves, and an upright shape perfect for a bonsai.
Just like a full-sized Jaboticaba tree growing in the ground, the Jaboticaba Sabra Bonsai blooms fragrant white flowers and produces sweet, grape-sized fruit directly on the trunk and limbs. This unusual display makes the Jaboticaba Sabra Bonsai Tree a standout in any setting. The Jaboticaba Sabra Bonsai can be grown outdoors in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 to 11. The potted tree can also be placed outdoors in summer in Zones 4 to 9, and then brought indoors or into a greenhouse over the winter.
