Jabuticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora), also known as the Brazilian grape tree, is native to Southern America. The tree, which can grow up to 45 feet high, bears grape-like fruits with purple-black skin and white to pink pulp. The delicious fruits, which grow directly on the tree trunk, have a delicate, sweet flavor, a sub-acid tang and an exotic fragrance. They can be eaten raw or used to make jelly, jam, juice or wine.
Several compounds have been isolated from jabuticaba fruit, including jaboticabin, a depside unique to jabuticaba. Anthocyanins, the most abundant type of flavonoid in jabuticaba, are responsible for the color of its dark purple skin. The fruit also contains amino acids, vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorus and some B vitamins.*
