Why Pineapple Guava Is For You
Well, if the blooms don't convince you, maybe I can. First off, you can eat them. That's right, send the husband out to pick some flowers for the salad, cocktails, or dessert (No pesticide here, people).
Did I mention that they can hide things? The neighbors, the shed, the compost pile all will disappear behind this baby. It won't take long either, because they grown really fast! Nascar fast!
Oh and what about the fruit? That's right, folks, this bush from heaven will give you fruits that taste a bit like pineapple! Hello smoothies!
What do you have to put into this fabulous example of evergreen shrubbery? Well, $14.99 and full sun to part shade. Alright, you should amend the soil too. They are actually drought-tolerant when established, but they will fruit more with regular water.
