Product Description

Grow something really different this year and amaze your friends and family with homegrown pineapple guavas.

A striking, year-round plant, Feijoa sellowiana 'Mammoth' is an evergreen shrub with attractive, grey-green, furry leaves, and exotic red flowers which are followed by juicy, sweetly aromatic, pineapple-flavoured fruits.

Also known as Acca or the Pineapple Guava, the pink and red fluffy flowers appear in May and being self-fertile, produce their crop of edible, red-flushed green fruit without the need for a second tree (although productivity is improved with two).

the fruits are roughly egg-shaped and about 3 inches long with a waxy green skin and drop once they are ripe. Alternatively, you can pick them before they ripen and finish them indoors to prevent bruising.

Hardy enough to grow in the UK climate, Feijowa is drought tolerant once established and can reach up to 3m (10ft) if left unpruned in a sheltered, sunny corner of the garden.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant up straight away.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Keep plants well watered to prevent fruit drop. A winter cooling period of at least 50 hours is needed for best fruit production.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Acca sellowiana:

  • If planting outside, choose a sheltered site that is protected from cold winds.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Pineapple Guava Aftercare:

  • Plants can withstand temperatures down to -5C so are hardy through most of the UK.
  • Feijowa may suffer damage in harsh winters in cold gardens so we recommend that if your garden is exposed to grow this plant as a greenhouse or conservatory over winter.
  • Plants are self-fertile but produces heavier fruiting when cross-pollinated.
  • For a better chance of fruit, where temperatures fall below 5C (41F), grow in cool greenhouse or conservatory (plants need cool but not freezing winter temperatures).

 

Pruning Feijoa sellowiana Mammoth:

  • Feijoa Sellowiana responds well to pruning and can be shaped easily to compliment your garden.
