Feijoa Sellowiana - Pineapple Guava - Acca sellowiana

Product ref: SP21559

Availability: In stock


Pineapple Guava or Feijoa Sellowiana (named after Portuguese botanist Joo da Silva Feij) is a small evergreen, fruit bearing tree originating from Brazil and northern Argentina. Feijoa Sellowiana is grown for its edible fruit which is green tinged with red and tastes like guava. Fruit production is fairly reliable as Feijoa fruit is self-pollinating.

Pineapple guava blooms in July, producing exotic flowers with beautiful white petals enveloping bright red stamens that burst skyward coating the end with yellow pollen. The oblong leaves are green above with a woolly white underside. Pineapple guava bark is initially light reddish brown but turns darker and peels with age. The plant itself is cold hardy, but best in a sheltered spot during a cold snap, or perhaps try planted against a warm South facing wall on well drained soil. The plant is usually pest and disease free so no need to worry there.

Supplied in approx. 5 litre containers.
