Native to the subtropical regions of Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, the Pineapple Guava (Feijoa Sellowiana) is a large evergreen shrub that can be grown for fruit or as an ornamental.
The foliage of this fruit-bearing beauty includes leathery, egg-shaped dark olive colored leaves with dense silver hairs on the lower portion and flowers appearing in the spring and summer months.
The flowers of the Pineapple Guava are edible with red to purple stamens and a rusty rose-colored inside.
The Pineapple Guavas fruit is oval or pear-shaped and typically a glossy green with an occasional pink hue and is best left to mature on the plant.
This shrub is very resilient and tolerant of many different soil types as long as it is well-drained.
