The Bambina Pineapple Guava from the Southern Living Plant Collection is brand new for 2019! Most people don’t have any idea of what a Pineapple Guava is. But that’s kind of a shame! It’s a delicious addition to any warm landscape, and chances are that you’ll be the only one on the block with one.

 

The Bambina Pineapple Guava produces egg-shaped fruits that range from 1.5-3 inches long. They are a blueish green color, with a waxy outside and a light roughness. Upon cutting into the fruit, you’ll find a sweet fragrance and creamy white center. The flavor is difficult to describe but is distinctly tropical in flavor. Most agree that the flavor is somewhere between a strawberry, pineapple, and guava. Additionally, this fruit turns ripe in late fall. This makes it one of the last harvests of the season, which is perfect for anyone looking to stretch out their fresh fruit season.

 

Besides tasty late-fall fruits, the Bambina Pineapple Guava features edible spring petals as well! These blooms are gorgeous. Dark red petals with white edges and thick red stamens with creamy golden tips. Truly tropical in appearance. Pick off the petals to your heart’s content, they won’t affect the fruit production. Furthermore, each petal is somewhat sweet, with a hint of cinnamon. They’re a perfect addition to salads or tropical beverages for a fantastic flavor and color contrast.

 

Its foliage is a grayish green and grows with a naturally rounded growth habit. In addition, these leaves remain dense, compact, and evergreen all year long.

 

Unlike other Pineapple Guava plants, the Bambina Pineapple Guava is a dwarf and only reaches 3-4 feet high and wide. Therefore, use this fruiting shrub in a hedge, border, container, mass planting, or in a mixed garden bed. You’ll appreciate its low-maintenance nature.

 

Bambina Pineapple Guava Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 8-10. Though it can be somewhat more cold tolerant when planted on the east or west side of a home, against the home’s foundation.

 

Plant in Full Sun to encourage maximum foliage, bloom, and fruit production. At least 5-6 hours of direct sun daily.

 

Water 2-3 times a week during the first growing season. In the second growing season, provide supplementary water 1-2 times per week. Afterward, the Bambina Pineapple Guava is considered rather water-wise.

 

Fertilize with a balanced organic fertilizer several times throughout the growing season to promote maximum growth and fruit production.
