Native Shrubs



 

Fruit: Feijoa sellowiana  Pineapple Guava, fruit   
Super-tasty fruits which are not viable for shipping to supermarkets - just for your back yard.

Pineapple Guavas are an ideal fruit tree for the Bay Area. Originally from the scrublands of Paraguay, Uruguay, northern Argentina and southern Brazil, these non-tropical, evergreen trees are drought tolerant (though they need water to set fruit) and virtually disease and pest free. They feature large, showy flowers with edible petals; dense, dark green foliage; plus delicious fruit to boot. The aromatic fruit is ripe when it falls to the ground. Fruiting season, depending on cultivar, is from late September to early December.

Pineapple guavas will grow to about 15 feet tall x 15 wide, but can be kept at any height or width by pruning. For a thick hedge, plant about 10ft.-15ft apart. Their dense foliage is ideal for screening out the view of your neighbors.

These seedlings were grown from fruit of 9 cultivars that I found to be the best tasting out of a selection of over 25 cultivars that were developed by our West Coast expert, Mark Albert in Ukiah. Mark has been selecting trees for Northern California that have superior tasting fruit for about 40 years.

The seedlings are from:

Albert’s Pride, early fruiting, late September
– October

Albert's Supreme, late fruiting, November
–early December
