Acca sellowiana

Pineapple guava, aka feijoa (pronounced fey-oh-uh), 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 long 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 and finish with a gentle resinous hint that lets you know you are enjoying a member of the Myrtle family.

This somewhat self-fertile bush will offer much higher yields with a 2nd seedling as a pollinizer, or with hand pollination. Grows well in a pot, getting about 4' tall and can be brought indoors in autumn to finish ripening the fruit. Hardy to 12° F, it can be grown successfully outdoors in warm winter parts of the US, but the fruit ripens only in the long summer areas of the country. Prefers climates that average 15F-90F. Enjoys maritime locations and tolerates salt spray.
