The Pineapple Guava Tree, also known by its scientific name Feijoa sellowiana, is a highly adaptable and attractive evergreen tree that originates from South America. This tree is celebrated not only for its ornamental qualities but also for its edible fruits, which have a unique flavor reminiscent of pineapple, guava, and strawberry. The Pineapple Guava Tree is versatile, capable of being grown as a dense shrub or pruned into a single or multi-trunk tree.

Growing to about 15 to 25 feet tall and wide, with the potential to reach up to 30 feet under optimal conditions, the Pineapple Guava Tree presents a robust and lush appearance. Its foliage consists of thick, oval-shaped leaves that are glossy green on top with a distinctive silvery underside, contributing to the tree's visual appeal throughout the year. In late spring to early summer, the tree produces striking flowers. The blooms feature white petals that are edible and have a sweet taste, surrounding a core of bright red stamens, adding to the tree's ornamental value.

Adapted to full sun to partial shade, Feijoa sellowiana thrives in well-draining soil and exhibits a notable drought tolerance once established. It can adapt to a variety of soil types, though it prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH. The Pineapple Guava Tree benefits from regular watering during dry periods and mulching to maintain soil moisture and temperature.

In landscaping, the Pineapple Guava Tree is often utilized as a specimen tree, in edible gardens for its fruit, or as part of a hedge or screen due to its dense foliage. The fruit, which typically ripens in the fall, can be consumed fresh, used in culinary preparations, or made into jams and jellies, adding a functional aspect to its ornamental and aesthetic appeal.

Overall, the Pineapple Guava Tree is a multifunctional and low-maintenance option for gardeners seeking to incorporate both beauty and utility into their landscape. Its resilience, coupled with its attractive flowers, foliage, and delicious fruits, make it a favored choice across a wide range of garden styles and settings.
