Fruto Jaboticaba

This tropical fruiting plant is native to Brazil.  The dark purple-black fruits 

grow directly off of the trunk of the tree.  The flesh of these fruits is similar in 
appearance to that of a lychee.  Several potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory 
anti-cancer compounds have been isolated from the fruit.

This plant is not native to Hawaiian and was brought in for use in wine and 
juice making. 

Occasionally, sapling trees can be found at open markets.  Open 
markets usually carry fresh fruits.  Wine made from fruits can be found at the Volcano Winery on the Island of Hawaii.
