An evergreen large shrub to small tree used as a culinary plant.
In autumn, it produces egg-sized green fruit with sweet, pineapple tasting flesh. The pulp has the appearance of guava, lending it it’s common name of pineapple guava. It is eaten in a similar manner to kiwifruit, scooping out the smooth flesh with a spoon to avoid the grittier texture closer to the skin.
As it is a tropical tree, plant in full to part sun in deep, free draining, organic rich soil with plenty of improvers of compost. Hardy once established.
