Feijoa sellowiana is commonly known as pineapple guava or Guavasteen is an evergreen perennial shrub or small tree that typically matures to 10-15’ tall. It is cultivated as an ornamental for appreciation of its evergreen foliage, flowers and fruit and/or as a fruiting tree/shrub for harvest of its edible fruit. It’s grown in the U.S. from Florida to Texas and California, but fruiting can sometimes be unreliable in these areas. Although fruits are often commercially sold where they are grown, they are rarely exported to other locations because they bruise easily. Cultivation: Winter hardy to USDA Zones 8-10. Will generally survive temperatures to 18 degrees F with out damage. Best in full sun. Tolerates part shade. Needs regular and consistent moisture to produce best fruits. Easily grown in average, well-drained soils. Best where winters are cool and summers moderate (80-90 degrees F). Summer heat stress may cause premature fruit drop. Can be pruned to form an interesting hedge. This is a good low-maintenance shrub for hot dry problem areas. For best fruit production, deeply water on a regular basis. Mulch soil around the shrubs to protect the shallow roots. Shipped in 3″ pots and are 1′ to 2’+ feet Tall.
