Another good reason to plant your own pineapple guava is the flowers in the spring. The white, succulent petals are beautiful and edible. They look great in salad.

As a kid, I considered our Strawberry Guava bush to be my personal candyland in October/November. I'd shake the branches, and whichever fruits fell were ripe. I'd roll each one in my hand till it felt squishy, then bite off the tip and squish the mooshy flesh into my mouth. Yum!

Lucky me - my puppy has discovered them. Now it is a race for the fallen fruits.

My tree is3 yrs old and this is the first yr of significant produce. My fruit is soft and scoops out easily but has been bitter. Is there any specific fertilizer or tips to improve flavor. Also recipes for use. Appreciate any advise.

Are all Feijoas bear edible fruits? I live in a town that have no clue of what a Feijoa , pineapple Guava is. I bought a couple of plants from Lowes ,(Nazemetz variety), but would like to grow different ones. A few other nurseries that sell the bushes have no clue of what varieties they are. Please hep if you can. Thanks, God bless

Eat the rind. It adds a nice tartness to experience.

Loved discovering your blog. We have a big pineapple guava bush/tree in our yard and we love it. My husband ate them as a kid in Florida – – he ate the whole thing—and I eat the insides out. A fun part of fall for us!
