OVERVIEW
Description Versatile, and easy to grow with an upright branching form, edible flowers, and tropical fruit! Fleshy white flower petals have showy red accents, contrasting nicely with the gray-green foliage. Tasty guava-like fruit ripens in late fall. Easily trained as espalier, a hedge, or a small specimen tree for landscape or container. Monrovia Pineapple Guava are grown from seed and are thus not a particular cultivar. Though mildly self-fertile, a second plant is recommended for better fruit set. Evergreen.

CARE
Care Grows easily in average to rich, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Feed with a slow-release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Provide a second plant for best pollination. Can be pollinated by hand to increase fruit set.
