Feijoa Sellowiana or Pineapple Guava or Acca Sellowiana, is an evergreen fruit tree or shrub with silver grey leaves (similar foliage to an olive tree). Feijoa is fairly drought tolerant with unusual striking flowers with pink petals and crimson fluffy tentacles inside. ineapple Guava has a copper coloured gnarled bark on long clear stems or trunks of almost 200 cm tall. These Feijoa Sellowiana trees have been shaped as full standard trees with a crown of foliage on top of a straight clear trunk. They won't get overly large and are therefore ideal for smaller gardens in this standard shape.
Pineapple Guava comes from the Family Myrtaceae and the Genus Acca. Characterised by their evergreen habit and round, simple leaves, they produce fleshy type flowers of pink and white. At the varietal level, sellowiana carries the evergreen habit, with grey-green shaded leaves with a dense, white felt on their undersides. Flowering in the summer, the pink petals give rise to a red-flushed, green fruit that is actually edible if harvested before they drop to the ground and brought inside to ripen fully. Once you cut them in half and scoop out the pulp, the fruit tastes similar to a minty pineapple. Acca Sellowiana originates from regions of Brazil and Uruguay.
Considered fully hardy to zone H3 in the UK and Ireland, this tree form shrub can be shaped and used as a virtually instant screening shrub in the landscape. Its favoured Aspects are to the South or West as it really prefers full sun and sheltered exposures.
In regards to soil types, choose from a sand to chalk to loam soil that drains well, and your Pineapple Guava shrub will be very happy. A pH on the alkaline side or near neutral is ideal. A modestly slow grower, it will take approximately 10-20 years to reach ultimate height and width. Ultimate height will reach around 3 metres and a width of comparable expanse, between 1.5-2.5 metres.
Pineapple Guava has great versatility. It responds well to pruning and shaping, is relatively low maintenance, and tolerates heat and drought quite well once established. Its resistance to insects and disease pests is an added bonus! This is a beautiful selection alone or planted in groups. Typical locations include wall side borders of city and courtyard gardens or as a coastal Mediterranean planting.
