More cold-hardy than a true guava
The Pineapple Guava is enjoyed in jelly, juice, pastries and a multitude of other recipes. The fruit can be round to pear-shaped, typically about the size of a baseball. The pulp is smooth, sweet, and extremely aromatic. The flesh tastes like a combination of pineapple, guava, strawberry and quince. These evergreen bushes are heavy producers and will begin fruiting at just one year of age. NOTE: Although commonly called pineapple guava, it is not a true guava.
