  • Pineapple guava growing tips:


  • -Best time to plant: Anytime of the year.


  • -Sun: Shade first year in ground. Once fully rooted, it will take full sun no problem. Its flowers won't tolerate full sun though.


  • -Winter: No winter protection in our area zone 9b.


  • -Growth rate: Slow to medium rate. Expect about 6"-1ft a year once fully established (1 full calendar year in ground).


  • -Root system: Semi-shallow root system, safe to plant close to structures.


  • -Tree structure: These are grown from seed. Naturally they tend to bush out unless you prune otherwise. They can reach a height up to 15ft or so.


  • -Flowers/fruit: They flower late spring and fruit ripens sometime in the fall. These are grown from seed so generally they could be self fertile or not. We just don't know as it's their first year flowering. To be safe and increase production, plant 2 in ground.


  • -Water: Water very frequently first summer in ground. As it gets older, you can deep water. (After 1 year in ground).


  • --Container growing: Due to its growth rate, these do ok in a container long term.


  • -How to plant: Drainage will dictate how big of a hole you need to dig (video available in the growing tips section). Plant in 50% compost 50% native soil, apply mulch on top, water when dry and done .
