DESCRIPTION
Pineapple Guava is a tropical-looking but hardy evergreen shrub or small tree admired and prized for its unique and sugar-sweet edible flowers and tasty tropical-like fruit. The exotic 1 to 1.5-inch flowers have curled petals with white undersides and fuchsia-pink topsides and a bouquet of up to 50 or more elongated, yellow-tipped bright red stamens that protrude from the center. Its waxy, green-skinned kiwi size fruits appear in mid to late summer developing a wonderful fragrance just before ripening in fall. Pineapple Guava has elongated leathery rich green leaves with silvery undersides. Make sure to plant Pineapple Guava where you can enjoy the flowers and fragrant fruit from up close.

Please Note: Though self-fruitful, no Pineapple Guava varieties are entirely self-fertile. The percentage varies per type, weather, cross-pollination, bird and bee activity, etc.

LANDSCAPE & GARDEN USES

Growing in an upright habit with a rounded form to 10-15 feet tall and 10-15 feet wide, Pineapple Guava is ideal for use as a large specimen shrub or "limbed up" to form an attractive small tree in landscape borders or home foundation plantings. Its dense foliage makes it an excellent selection as an evergreen hedge or screen. A fine addition to edible landscapes, tropical gardens, wildlife gardens, and cottage gardens.

Note: For our customers who live and garden in very cool to cold areas during the winter months, where this plant is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

GROWING PREFERENCES
Pineapple Guava is easy to grow in a moist but well drained soil with plenty of organic matter and full sun or part shade. It adapts to both acid or alkaline soil conditions so pH isn't usually a concern. It can be pruned for shaping purposes in early spring or after harvesting the fruit. Pineapple Guava flowers are produced on new growth (new shoots), so pruning in early spring will not prevent flowering and fruiting later in the season. Avoid winter pruning. Once established, Pineapple Guava is quite drought tolerant.

NOTE: For proper pollination and fruiting of your Pineapple Guava (Feijoa) tree it is advisable to purchase and plant two (2) or more Pineapple Guava (Feijoa) trees within a 20 foot proximity to each other.
