Pineapple Guava

Availability: Out of stock
Tasty tropical flowers and tasty tropical fruit!

Her garden in sunny Southern California is unabashedly romantic. If gardens could flirt, you would be blushing. The enclosing walls drip with bougainvillea and the beds are fragrant with lavender and sage. But over in that corner…what is that?

It is a large bush, or maybe a small tree. The foliage is a typical Mediterranean gray-green, but it is covered in odd flowers. They are strikingly white and red and each petal is fleshy like a succulent.

She beckons you over to the bistro table she has laid out with loaves of bread, jars of honey, teas and a basket of small fruit that you have never seen before. She slices one and hands you a piece. It is highly scented and tropically flavored, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.

“What is it?” you ask.

She smiles. She flirts as well as her garden does.

Pineapple Guava (Feijoa sellowiana) is a versatile, easy to grow semi-tropical for zones 8-10 that is neither pineapple nor guava, but it is a showy plant with beautiful flowers (they are tasty on their own!), and sweet guava-like fruit. It can be trained as an espalier, a hedge or a lovely container plant. It is an excellent screen or specimen plant.
