Description:

Pineapple Guava is renowned for its ornamental beauty and edible fruit. Native to South America, it's a popular choice in gardens for its versatility, attractive foliage, and unique flowers.

One of the most striking features of Pineapple Guava is its flowers. The blooms are not only visually appealing but also edible, with a sweet, aromatic taste. They appear in late spring to early summer and are followed by oval-shaped, edible fruit, which typically ripens in the fall. The fruit has a sweet, aromatic flavor that's often described as a mix of pineapple, guava, and mint.

In addition to its flowers and fruit, Pineapple Guava has attractive, glossy, dark green leaves with a silvery underside. This dense foliage makes it an excellent choice for hedges, privacy screens, or as a standalone specimen. The plant can also be trained into a small tree or espaliered against a wall.

Pineapple Guava is a hardy plant, tolerant of a variety of soil types, though it prefers well-drained conditions. It's somewhat drought-tolerant once established and can handle coastal conditions and salt spray. Regular watering and fertilization can enhance fruit production.

In terms of care, Pineapple Guava requires minimal pruning. It can be pruned to maintain a desired shape or size or left to grow naturally. The plant is also resistant to most pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance option for gardeners.

Overall, Pineapple Guava is valued for its dual purpose as both an ornamental and a fruit-bearing plant. Its combination of attractive foliage, stunning flowers, delicious fruit, and ease of care makes it a popular choice for a wide range of garden settings.
