guavas

Originally from Brazil, Feijoa sellowiana is a cold hardy guava that can be grown as far north as middle Georgia. These evergreens have striking glossy-green leaves that are silvery white underneath.

Plants bloom in May and are covered with tiny orchid-like pink and crimson blossoms. By August, the plum-shaped fruits are ready to eat and are harvested when they fall to the ground. Simply slice open and scoop out the delectable, creamy flesh. The flavor is considered by many true guava lovers to be the best in the world. Use fresh in fruit salads, or make guava jelly and jam.

These trouble-free trees rarely exceed 18 feet in height. When lightly pruned they develop into graceful, small trees. They can be trimmed into bold, short hedges or tall, thick privacy screens. Pineapple Guavas need cross-pollination, so be sure to get at least two plants to ensure a good crop.

Fall Fruit Salad

1/2 cup pineapple guava (scooped out of the outer shells)
1/2 cup tangerines (peeled, sectioned and deseeded)
1 cup non-astringent persimmons cut into large, chunky pieces
1/4 cup chopped toasted almonds

Mix first three ingredients together. Drizzle with honey and toss lightly. Set aside for 1 hour. Sprinkle with almonds and serve.
