Pineapple Guava Seedling
Pineapple Guava makes for a beautiful (and tasty) landscape or potted plant! This evergreen multi-stemmed shrub with softly felted, silvery green leaves can grow 8-10 feet tall in a warm and protected location. Hardy to 12° F, it can be grown successfully outdoors in warm winter parts of the US, but the fruit ripens only in the warm summer areas of the country. The large pink-blushed flower petals each spring taste like cinnamon cotton candy; the 2-inch-long, silvery fruit combines the flavors of pineapple, banana and strawberry.
This self-fertile bush grows well in a pot, getting about 4' tall and can be brought indoors in autumn to finish ripening the fruit.
