DANNER, Moeses Andrigo et al. Germplasm characterization of three jabuticaba tree species. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.3, pp.839-847.  Epub Sep 09, 2011. ISSN 0100-2945.

The purpose of this study was to characterize cultivated genotypes of three jabuticaba species (Plinia cauliflora, P. trunciflora, and P. jaboticaba). Phenology and fruit growth, as well as leaf, flower and fruit traits were evaluated. Variability in all traits was observed among genotypes of the three jabuticaba species. The trait peduncle size is indicated for differentiation of the three species under study. The leaf and fruit sizes of the genotypes P. trunciflora 3, P. trunciflora 4, P. trunciflora 5 and P. jaboticaba 1 differ from those described in the literature for these species, indicating the formation of ecotypes. Jabuticaba fruit skin contains high anthocyanin and flavonoid concentrations, with potential use in food and pharmaceutical industries.

Keywords : Plinia sp; germplasm bank; genetic variability; fruit quality.
