Jaboticaba fruit

Thanks for sending the picture Claudia. I was interested to hear the comment from Sandy from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland that the fruit was available at her local farmers' market. I guess it is very soft fruit and may not transport well and therefore may not become better known outside local areas where it is grown. The wine made from the fruit sounds very interesting as well.
