JESUS, Natanael de et al. Characterization of four groups of jaboticaba trees, in conditions of Jaboticabal city, São Paulo state, Brazil. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.3, pp.482-485. ISSN 0100-2945.

The present research was carried out with the objective to evaluate the morphological and physical characteristics of plants and fruits of jaboticaba trees, from the collection of the FCAV - UNESP, Campus of Jaboticabal, São Paulo State. Among the 160 plants of the collection, 40 flowering trees were selected for this research. These plants were grouped according to morphological simmilarities, in four groups, identified as Jab-1, Jab-2, Jab-3 and Jab-4. In these groups the folowing variables were evaluated: plant heigh, stalk diamenter, crows diameter, brauch internode lengh, leaf width and lengh, fruit diameter, fruit lengh, number of seeds per fruit and fresh mass of the bark, pulp and seed of the fruits. Data were statistically analised as a completed randomized plots design, with your treatments (four groups of plants) and five replications composed by two plants each. Analysis of variance was performed by (F) test, and the means were compared by Tuckey test. It was observed great variability among studied groups. The group Jab-4 was the most promising for breeding programs because its precocity, fruit production smaller trees larger proportion of pulp, in spite of smallen fruits size in comparison to these from other groups.
