Lu keeps a vegetable garden and fruit trees behing the farm house. One fruit is very unique and very Brasilian. They call it the Jaboticaba. It has purple fruit, closely resmbling the grape, and having somewhat of a grape-like flavor. Pulp is white, juicy, and sweet . It is a slow-growing tree, well-known in Brasil but not ubiquitous. They are so popular that people will "rent" a tree for an hour so strangers can pick and eat all they want.
