Growing Pineapple Guava Plants

Pineapple guava is an evergreen shrub native to subtropical, higher elevation, regions of South America. Pineapple guava performs best in well-drained, loamy soil, rich in organic matter, but it will tolerate a bit of clay. If left to grow naturally, pineapple guava will grow to about 15, maybe 20 feet tall and just as wide, but you can also train it to be a small tree.  It responds very well to pruning, making it a good choice if you’re looking to create a hedge row.

Versatile, and easy to grow with an upright branching form, edible flowers, and tropical fruit! Fleshy white flower petals have showy red accents, contrasting nicely with the gray-green foliage. Tasty guava-like fruit ripens in late fall. Easily trained as espalier, a hedge, or a small specimen tree for landscape or container.

The leaves are light green, thick, and somewhat leathery, with soft gray undersides. The flowers are quite striking as well, with just a few pale-pink petals, but dozens of long red stamens.  Bees and butterflies absolutely love them! Its fall ripened fruit is edible, though many recommend letting them actually fall to the ground for the sweetest taste. If you’d like to produce a nice harvest, you should fertilize the plant in spring and give it plenty of water during the heat of the summer.

You will receive one pineapple guava plant that has been growing in a 5 gallon container. The plant will be 3 to 4 feet in height.
