Re: Tree ID KNOWN UD  17 JUNE 2011 Jaboticaba 


Dear All   including my photos of the Jaboticaba,


Brazilian tree grape


*Myricaria cauliflora *

Family :  Myrtaceae


I am including 7 photos including a photo of the Name ID plate put up by the Botanical Garden…


Date/Time-   September 2010  Southern California

Location- Place, Altitude, GPS-  Sea level

Habitat- Garden/ Urban/ Wild/ Type-   Botanical Garden

Plant Habit- Tree/ Shrub/ Climber/ Herb- Tree

Height/Length- Approximately 15 ft

Leaves Type/ Shape/ Size-

Inflorescence Type/ Size-  I was not there when it happened

Flowers Size/ Colour/ Calyx/ Bracts-  see above

Fruits Type/ Shape/ Size Seeds- BLACK cauliflory  1 to 1.8 cms Round  thin skinned fruits

                                                 Blackish beige pulp

Other Information like Fragrance, Pollinator, Uses etc.-  Not present  with fruits 



Elsewhere, in another place ... not a botanical garden, I was allowed to taste the fruits, kind-a sweet, not too

distinctive... but blue/black color makes me think that there might be Phyto nutrients in the pulp and the skin... if it can be grown ORGANICALLY... 


Thanks

Usha di

Dear Colleagues
Not to confuse between Myricaria (Tamaricaceae) a genus of small shrubs uploaded by Joshi ji today and Myrciaria (Myrtaceae) a genus of trees uploaded by Ushadi ji in this thread.

Yes typo....

((OLD TYPING  Dear All   including my photos of the Jaboticaba,

Brazilian tree grape  *Myricaria cauliflora *  Family :  Myrtaceae ))

 
***Correct name spelling is MYRCIARIA  cauliflora.

Thanks Gurucharanji for picking it up so nicely and quickly.

Question... can you as a moderator go in to my message and correct it? or the typo will have to remain and be corrected by your message followed by this message I typed right now.

your second option will remain, it is alright as the thread will appear together on website.
