Feijoa. Acca sellowiana.
Feijoa are also known as Pineapple Guava although it is not a member of the Guava family.
This attractive tree can be grown as a productive hedge, screen or windbreak. It can be espaliered, used as a specimen plant or planted in large pots.
Choose a full sun to part shade position in well draining soil.
Feijoa can grow to around four metres in height but can be maintained to around 2m.
In spring it will produce sweet purple, pink and white edible flowers which can be used in desserts and drinks.
The green-skinned fruit is egg-shaped and has an aroma of strawberry and guava.
These are self fertile, although it is recommended to have another tree from a named variety for cross pollination, which will result in more (and often better) fruit.
