PINEAPPLE GUAVA-Feijoa sellowiana Blooming Fruiting Shrub Z 8-10

The Pineapple Guava is an easy to care for fruiting plant and is great for container growing.
This is a drought tolerant plant and is an evergreen shrub with soft green leaves and silvery undersides.
The flowers are sweet and edible and appear from about May through June. It has a kiwi-sized fruit with a waxy green skin and a soft succulent flesh similar to a pear in texture.
The green fruit develops a sweet fragrance even before it fully ripens in the fall.
"Pineapple Guava" tastes like a combination of pineapple and guava or pineapple and strawberry, often with overtones of winter green or spearmint.
Cut the fruit in half and scoop the pulp with a spoon for a delicious treat.
Plants need to be subjected to cool night temperatures from the 20's- 50's for successful flowering.
Fruiting starts 3-5 years after planting.
Self-fertile, but bears larger fruit, with cross-pollination.
Feijoa is remarkably pest-and disease-resistant. Also known as Acca sellowiana.
Zones 8-10

Plants are shipped out on Mondays,Tuesdays,Wednesdays, and Saturdays...according to when the auction ends and payment received. Payment is due IMMEDIATELY at auction end thru PayPal. Therefore, late payment means slower shipping for you and plant possibly sold to secondary buyer, UNLESS YOU MAKE ARRANGEMENTS WITH ME VIA EBAY EMAIL. I take great care in wrapping plants to assure they arrive safely, but sometimes the Post Office gets careless and damages the package. I only ship plants to lower 48 states, Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Protectorates, and APO/FPO address no international shipping at this time, but am working on same on a country by country basis! If there are any certificates, special regulations for your state,  or special shipping costs above and beyond what normally occurs in my regular shipping to the lower 48 states...buyer is responsible to tell me and pay any additional costs incurred...as an example I just shipped to Puerto Rico, though with no problem...I'm thinking, if I ship to Alaska, for instance, I would need to do that during the summer and add heat packs...again, up to the buyer to tell me what is necessary, as you have received shipments before and you know better what is needed!! Thanks, JT

ONCE THE PLANTS LEAVE MY POSSESSION I CAN NOT GUARANTEE BUDS DUE TO TOO MANY VARIABLES SUCH AS POST OFFICE HANDLING, HEAT, AND COLD.
* ANY QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS, SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I WILL TRY TO ANSWER YOU. THANK YOU, JT FROM GREATER NEW WAVERLY, TEXAS!!!
