OTHER: The Pineapple Guava is a shrub or small tree with delicious edible fruit & stunningly beautiful flowers that are also edible!
Feijoa Sellowiana is native to areas of South America. It has lovely silvery green foliage. The leaves are evergreen leaves are deer resistant. The plants tolerates some dryness & do not mind coastal conditions like salt air. In cooler climates, Pineapple Guavas can be grown in containers & brought indoors to overwinter. They are a great choice to grow at home because the fruit is so popular you can't get it, & it's very expensive if you can find some.
The huge showy flowers have two-tone pink & white petals that are filled by bright red stamens with golden tips. The flower petals are indeed edible, & they have a sweet tropical flavor with a hint of cinnamon spice. The flowers are most commonly used in salads. Tres chic! Removing the petals does not hurt the plants fruiting ability. Birds like to eat the flowers too!
In fall, the bushes will be fragrant with 3" oval green fruit. The Pineapple Guava is not a true guava, but they are related. Pineapple Guavas have sweet white flesh that tastes like a heavenly combination of pineapple, apple, strawberry, guava, & mint. The fruit also has a texture like a guava, more so nearer to the skin. The center is more gelatinous & clear when they are fully ripe. They are commonly eaten fresh with a spoon right out of the skin. Pineapple Guavas can also be made into tea, wine, jelly, chutneys, & even used as a flavoring for vodkas & ice cream.

Started them in seed starting mix, timed grow lights, the whole bit. 3 months later, nothing. Giving up. My other seeds did fine, it's not me. Seller not responding to my messages.
