Pineapple Guava Tree

Pineapple guava Acca sellowiana  is a fruit that originated from Brazil. Although not a true guava, it’s fruit so closely resembles guava it is a wonderful substitute.  Some varieties of this cold-hardy fruit can be grown as far north as zone 7a. The trees are evergreen, with striking blue- green leaves that are silvery white underneath. Plants bloom in May and are covered with small orchid-like pink and crimson blooms. The fleshy pink petals are a delicious treat and have a sweet flavor and texture that melts in your mouth like cotton candy. By September  the plum-shaped fruit are ready to eat and are harvested when they fall to the ground. Simply slice open and scoop out the delectable creamy white flesh. The flavor is considered to be the best in the world by many true guava lovers! Use fresh in fruit salad or make guava jelly and jam. It’s tangy pineapple flavor also lends it self nicely to marinades and meat glazes.
Pineapple guavas are one of the easiest, most problem free fruits you can grow – a little care will go a long way with this tree. Pineapple guavas need cross-pollination – be sure to get at least 2 plants.
