The Pineapple Guava is one of my favorite plants. Acca sellowiana, makes a great addition to all types of gardens. They are frost tolerant. Grow them in shallow containers to give you the choice of planting them in bonsai plant pots or grow them large in big containers/ground (Zone 8-10 in ground). The sweet fruit sweet has a taste similar to pineapple and ripens quickly and the flowers are edible too! The ones offered by AdeniumRose Company were seed grown in SE Florida. The plants needs a cool period prior to flowering to develop fruit.
You will received two plants similar to the ones in the image.
* These are 1.5yr old plants.
* They were cropped/pruned to grow thicker trunks and produce strong healthy plants.
* Grown for the flowers/fruits and would make excellent bonsai plants too. These would be considered pre-bonsai with some initial pruning.
* Average height of plant you will receive 12" tall
* Shipped with nursery pot - NOT CERAMIC PLOT
* Images are from 2 months after they were pruned
Recommended Bonsai pot size 4" x 4" x 2.5 or 6" x 4" x 2.5
Recommended pot for container garden: 4" x 6" (Width x Height) - repot as it gets larger.
The fragrant blooms attract hummingbirds and bees and taste like cinnamon cotton candy. Delicious, green, oval fruit ripens in fall in areas with warm summers. Tea - You can make tea using the flowers. Take some flowers and add a couple mint leaves and boil. Add sweeter or not!
