About Feijoa sellowiana (Pineapple Guava)
This evergreen shrub is called Feijoa sellowiana. Blooming in early summer and lasting several months, beautiful flowers with four cupped white petals with red accents emerge. Not only interesting in appearance, these flowers are also edible and have been used for jams or as garnishes. In the fall green, edible guava-like fruit with a mild flavor and juicy texture begins to ripen, a delightful characteristic for those who like fruiting plants. Reaching an average mature landscape size of 10-15′ tall by 10-15′ wide, this shrub grows upright at a moderate rate.
This variety’s common name is known as Pineapple Guava.
Care and planting instructions
Plant Feijoa sellowiana in an area that receives full sun exposure using well-draining soil. Water regularly after planting to help it establish quickly, then reduce frequency to weekly. This plant is known to tolerate mild drought conditions. To help encourage future growth, use a general fertilizer in the winter and cut back any unwanted growth to control its shape or size.
Landscape design ideas
Pineapple Guava can be used for tropical or mediterranean style landscapes. Its large size makes it an excellent option to use as a privacy hedge or decorative hedge.
