Jaboticaba are tropical tree right ? Here in Indonesia, they can grow well in full sun without any special treatment. Just like another fruit tree such as guava.

They cant tolerate frost. Maybe you can bring them into warm greenhouse. But i dont know how hard winter there.

Hope it can help 😊

Alex, I don't know anything about Jaboticaba (Plinia cauliflora) but at the bottom of the database page you can read comments from a couple of members who grow that lovely tree.

I have grown Jaboticaba for years. It is not a difficult plant to grow. It will take some frost and likes lots of water. The problem is, even under ideal conditions, it is a painfully slow grower. If you plant a small tree, you will have to wait 12 to 15 years for a decent crop of fruit. Once it starts to fruit, you can get two to three crops a year. My tree is now 17 years old and is about 10 feet tall. I fertilize it 4 times each year and water it often. I have had no fungus or insect problems. My tree has taken 28 degrees without any signs of damage.
