I have a young jaboticaba tree in south Florida. I just planted it a few months ago and it's now putting out its first set of new leaves. I noticed on some of the new leaves there are holes in them. I tried looking all over the leaves and can't find any bugs that might be eating them. Any idea what it can be and if it's a problem? Thanks

Looks like beetle damage, probably from cucumber beetles. There has been an outbreak of them all over the southern US. Usually they attack a plant and move on which apparently is what happened here. Just keep an eye on your tree and if they show up again spray them with a spinosad based product.
