Moderately easy to grow, pineapple guava (which gets its name from the flavor of the fragrant fruit) is a small tree that doesn’t need a second tree for pollination. This plant cannot withstand winter temperatures lower than 12 degrees Fahrenheit (-11 C.), therefor, it must be grown in a pot in Québec, and brought indoors for winter!
Feijoa pineapple guava performs well in full sun or partial shade. It prefers rich, organic, well-drained soil with an acid or slightly alkaline pH. When the pH is too high, the leaves turn yellow. Newly planted and young trees need weekly watering. Fertilize every other month. Only lightly prune, after all fruit has fallen.
Your plant will bloom in the spring, and the very fragrant, attractive blossoms may attract hummingbirds! Fruit should be ready to harvest about 5 months later.
