Jabuticaba – The Tree that Fruits on its Trunk ~ Kuriositas- No, this is not a belated April Fool’s prank. They look as if they may have been pinned there by an over enthusiastic gardener to impress the neighbors but the fruit of the Jabuticaba really does grow off the trunk of the tree.
This is a Jaboticaba tree, native to Central and South America. The fruit grows out of the trunk! These grow in the Phoenix area, and they sell them at Tropica Mango.
