Pineapple Guava

Feijoa sellowiana

An attractive, easy-growing, fruiting evergreen shrub that can be trained as a patio tree, espalier, hedge, or small specimen tree. Gray-green foliage becomes dappled with showy edible flowers in early summer, followed by matte blue-green fruits. The flowers are said to have a sweet flavor, while the fruits taste like a blend of pineapple and strawberry, and are loved by birds, bees, and humans. This species is self-fertile, but produces a larger crop with a pollinizer nearby.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
