Pineapple Guava Tree

Alternative Views:

The Guava tree, Acca sellowiana 'Pineapple' grows in a bush form and might be more accuratedly referred to as a 'Guava Bush', but most orignating countries in South America, where the Guava grows naturally as a native evergreen plant, it is called  'Feijoa'.  A mature guava tree can grow to a height of 15 feet with a crown, likewise, spreading to 16 feet and in Florida, it is common to grow Guava shrubs as hedges, privacy barriers and to reduce gusts of wind.  The multicolored flowers of lavender with a central core of scarlet red stamens (male parts) are beautiful and often are picked to serve with a salad, where they add an agreeable salty, indescribable  flavor.  The fruit at its ripening climax is green skinned with an amber pulp that matures into a crisp, complex flavor reminiscent of figs and pineapple and a faint tempting fruity aroma.  When completely ripe the pineapple guavas fall from the tree, but for best flavor enjoyment, the fruit should be picked off the tree when a slight softness develops to the touch by the finger.  Some gardeners prefer to shake the guava fruits off the tree at intervals every couple of days in order to collect the freshest tasting fruit.

3 of 5 Alive March 15, 2018
Reviewer: Edward Duff from Sanford, FL United States  
Finally something that was alive. I bought 2 and they were bundled together and it took work to get the roots untangled from each other.
