What are those fruits? I bought them from the side of the road when I did a big road trip across Brazil in 2014 but I never understood when people told me the name.
I love eating local fruits which aren’t sold elsewhere.
These are jabuticabas. And they are delicious. People in my village make wine with them, I preffer to just eat tons directly from the tree when it's season. The season lasts very little, so gotta enjoy it while u can.
Jabuticaba jam and preserves are also delicious.
I remember the first time I noticed that people outside of Brazil are not familiar with Jabuticabas, it was a revelation for me.
My mom has one Jabuticabeira at her home but it is impossible to harvest any fruit from it because the birds eat them before they're truly ripe.
